Happy Father’s Day (21 June 2020)

“Fathers play a unique and important role in the lives of their children. As mentor, protector, and provider, a father fundamentally influences the shape and direction of his child’s character by giving love, care, discipline, and guidance.

As we observe Father’s Day, our Nation honors fatherhood and urges fathers to commit themselves selflessly to the success and well-being of their children. And we reaffirm the importance of fathers in the lives of their children.

Raising a child requires significant time, effort, and sacrifice; and it is one of the most hopeful and fulfilling experiences a man can ever know. A father can derive great joy from seeing his child grow from infancy to adulthood. As a child matures into independence and self-reliance, the value of a parent’s hard work, love, and commitment comes to fruition.

Responsible fatherhood is important to a healthy and civil society. Numerous studies confirm that children whose fathers are present and involved in their lives are more likely to develop into prosperous and healthy adults. Children learn by example; and they need their father’s presence as examples of virtue in their daily lives. A child’s sense of security can be greatly enhanced by seeing his parents in a loving and faithful marriage.” – GEORGE W. BUSH (President of the United States of America)

Happy Fathers Day to all Dads out there.

How to change the application icon

Hi everyone. I hope you are all well.

Today we will look at changing the application icon of our software so we can easily identify its software version. See images below for how they look before and after.

Before we proceed, please visit the Parallax Website to download the free application icons that they have developed and save it to your local drive.

In this example, we will be changing the icon of our Revit 2016.

Go to your C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Revit 2016, look for the ‘Revit.exe‘. file and create a desktop shortcut if you don’t have one yet available on your desktop.

Create a desktop shortcut of your application if you don’t have one yet available on the desktop.

Then on your desktop, right click on that newly created application icon and you’ll see the option to change the icon.

Once done changing the icon, right-click again and select ‘Unpin from Taskbar’ if it’s already pinned then pin it back to the taskbar to show the new icon.

I hope this helps. Have a great day.
