The "Default" Visual Studio icon

This is a silly question. When I create a new project, Visual Studio
assigns a default icon (the one with some small colorful squares) to
the program. The icon is used in the title bar but not as the program
icon.

Question is, how can I use it as the program (exe) icon, and how can I
extract it?

Hi,

Most probably it exist as in .ICO file under the VS install folder.

You could always get a screen shot and cut it out, and save it to an icon
file that way.

Hi, melon

You can change it in the properties of the project.

Emil.
