Strange Behaviour.

I’ve changed the application icon and applied it also to all Forms and Reports and it works perfectly under Windows 7, however in Windows 10 the app icon in the task bar is the Access default, ditto for all Forms but the Reports do display the correct icon. As a test I added the following lines of code to see if it made any difference: -

CurrentDb.Properties(“AppIcon”) = FrontEndPath & “\Icons\HomeContents.ico”
CurrentDb.Properties(“UseAppIconForRrmRpt”) = True

This made no difference at all.

The application icon in the options > Current Database > Application Options is also set to this icon along with “Use as Form and Report Icon”.

What I can’t get my head around is why the icon displays correctly on all reports yet is missing everywhere else.

After writing the above I found the solution to the missing app icon in Windows 10 it is: -

TaskBarSettings > Combine Taskbar Buttons > “Never”, however this did not solve the icon on all forms being missing and why has this only cropped up as an issue in the last week?

My current Windows version is Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.19041.264].

My Access version is 16 (MSI) install.

My general theory and attitude is that Windows 10 has a lot of bugs and a long way to go before its stable like Windows 7. We made the decision back in October 2012 to freeze on Windows 7 with Office 2010 Pro SP2 perpetual license and it was well worth it. We have not encountered any issues with this winning combo.
