Change the icon of a published RemoteApp in Windows Server


If you have selected an incorrect icon when publishing a RemoteApp on a Remote Desktop Services server, then unfortunately this cannot be changed via the GUI so far.


With the help of PowerShell and the command Set-RDRemoteApp there is a possibility to change the icon afterwards. You should make sure that the icon is available on every server within the collection.

Set-RDRemoteApp -CollectionName "RemoteApps" -Alias "MyApp" -IconPath "C:\MyApp\Start.ico"

Otherwise you can also use an icon from C:\Windows\System32\shell32.dll by additionally specifying the respective -IconIndex.

Set-RDRemoteApp -CollectionName "RemoteApps" -Alias "MyApp" -IconPath "c:\windows\system32\shell32.dll" -IconIndex 10


If you have an .ico file, then you do not have to use PowerShell. The .ico files are located on the Connection Broker in the %WINDIR%\RemotePackages\CPubFarms\CPubRemoteApps directory and can be replaced by your own .ico files.
