I have written a program in C++ and created a desktop shortcut to start it. I also assigned an icon to the shortcut.
However, when I run the program, the icon that appears on the panel/taskbar to represent the running program is a plain window.
My panel/taskbar is on the right hand side and the icon is at the bottom, like this:
How do I change the panel/taskbar icon to match the one in my desktop shortcut?
