Path

Last Updated: 12/12/2016

Path specifies the path to an application. This application should contain an icon to be shown in the notification area at the far right of the taskbar.

By setting the Path and GUID elements of the PromotedIcon2 component, you can configure another icon to be visible in the notification area. This icon will appear in place of the Battery icon.

To select the icon to be visible, you must:

  • Select a signed binary application file that includes a notification-area icon.

  • Set both the Path and GUID elements for the file.

For information about finding the path and GUID for your icon, see the MSDN topic: NOTIFYICONDATA Structure.
