The pvarDescription parameter provides an accessible description (Microsoft UI Automation "HelpText") of the information conveyed by the icon overlay.

The icon resource file must contain a 16x16 icon at 96 dots per inch (dpi). If an icon overlay is already applied, the existing overlay is replaced.

Note  To view the icon overlay, the taskbar buttons must be in their default large icon mode. Small taskbar icons do not support icon overlays.
