Easy Req: Add a 16x16 program icon to some window title bars

Post by bull » Nov 25th, 2010, 6:07 am

hi,

Please add a lovely program icon (16x16) on the window titles for both UsbSafelyremove and Zentimo products. You could easily implement this in next minor updates.

I made the following below to show you what I mean:

thanks for reading

Hello,

Thank you for your suggestion. We will consider it for future versions of the program.

Yes good,

Request is for both UsbSafelyRemove and Zentimo, plus any other app you release. It just looks better to see that icon. Thank you.

Hi Bull,
Actually this is an interesting idea, but it may be a bit unusual for a Windows user, since usually in Windows apps have icon only in main app window, all other dialogs of app like settings, properties and etc do not have an icon in the window title.

E.g. take a look at Google Chrome:

However the Kaspersky Anti-virus has got an icon on all its windows... :D

Both you guys are correct in that some apps have it but generally most don't.

The obvious capability is there and available for dev's to use, however I guess most dev's overlook the feature. In the past, when contacting dev's like yourselves, I have often raised the suggestion of this feature along with other app requests. Another one relating to icon's I often raise is support for 256x256 Vista/7 image size within their icons too :)

Here are screenshots of apps that have it and a lot that don't:
(screenshots were taken on my non-Aero Vista sp1)

Please update this thread if you add the feature in future. Please update this thread just to notify me. Something like 'dear bull, we have now added this feature into [product+version]'

thank you

Have you decided on adding this in a next update?

It would be nice for just the 'Options' and 'About' windows of USBSR.. Or maybe all windows why not

To Igor and all USBSR developers,

this is a lovely (very small) feature which all Windows developers can make use of. It adds beauty and recognition to a Windows GUI interface for the user and is not difficult to add (I suggested to another developer of a different app and he liked it and implemented it in his next build).

It is for all users who use and enjoy USBSR.
