Defaut app by file type
« on: April 11, 2022, 13:05:11 »
Hello,
I've recently changed over to Ancestris from GenealogyJ and am using Windows 10.  I am slowly figuring everything out (very slowly). When I set all GEDCOM files on my computer to open with Ancestris by using Select Settings  > Apps > Default apps, I chose ancestris64.exe which shows the generic icon for ancestris (brown box). If I did this correctly, how can I get Windows to display the correct logo, the white ball with the feather? If I did not set the the file typ correctly, can you please tell me how to do it correctly. Thank you.

Sorry, You can't.

There is two difficulties :
- Windows doesn't allow to customize the icon for default operation, it takes the icon of the software you link with
- Netbeans doesn't allow us to customize the icon of the windows launcher. We can only rename it.
