Change default icon for Windows Application

Creating an Windows application with C# (a.exe).
My program a.exe has default icon (in Windows Explorer). How to change

Asuming you are using MS VS .Net

Add the Icon you want to your project,
Set the build action property for the icon to "embedded resource"

Open the property dialog for the project,
under Common properties/General/Application Icon/
enter the name of your added file.

Thats it
