Blue round FC icon in the taskbar - looks like IE etc.

Is it possible to change FC icon pinned to the taskbar? It is blue, round and looks almost identical to IE browsers'. If several windows are open, hard to distinguish which is Free Commander :(

Write "FcIconNr=2" in your freecommander.ini in the [Form] section.
It changes the program icon in taskbar and in titlebar to orange FC-icon.
You have to edit the ini while FC is closed.

[Form]
FcIconNr=2

This has worked, thank you!! The icon is brown colored now, although still round. Anyway, I can live with it :)

This should be turned into an option available in the Settings

And there should be along with that an option to change accordingly the FC icon in the OS [so that it would stay consistent]


I would also like to see more color version versions. I can personally can prepare some dark version in Photoshop, if would get the original file from Marek

Actually, I quit using FC in the end... and purchased Total Commander, which is far better although not freeware.
