Curiouser and Curiouser . . .
This is getting even stranger - - I went back into the Visual Studio icon editor with my 32x32 icon and did a "new image type" and selected 16x16 256 colors. I drew a new 16x16 icon and saved it. I went back into the Properties for Form1 and in the Icon property I did a reset and the re-selected the icon file.
The OLD 32x32 icon still appeared in the Form1 property menu!
The NEW 16x16 icon now appears in the title bar for the app, BUT it's not 16x16. It looked distorted so I did did a screen capture and scaled it to 800% to count pixels and it looks like they're displaying it at about 20x20 pixels.
The Alt-tab now shows the OLD 32x32 icon but the Taskbar has the NEW one!
I also did a View...Other Windows ... Resource View but it was empty.
Could someone please explain what's going on and how to do this right? Thanks again.
