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.

Cheers.

Power BI Dashboard to Microsoft Team Page

​Hi everyone,

Here is a quick tutorial on how to add your Power BI Dashboard to the Microsoft Team Page.

Let’s get started.

First, from the Microsoft Team bottom left-hand corner, select the “Apps” icon.

Then a pop-up window will appear. In the search tab, Type “Power BI”.

Then select the Power BI in the apps.

After that, you’ll be asked to which team you would like your Power BI dashboard to be added. Click “Add to a team”.

Then select the team. For this example, I’ll be choosing “General – London Buildings” team.

Then continue the setup by clicking “Set up a tab”.

Next, select which dashboard from your Power BI Workspace is the one you would like to be added to the Microsoft team.

Wait for a few seconds and you’ll notice a new tab is created to match the name of your Power BI dashboard.

The dashboard is now live in your Microsoft Team.

Do you find this useful? I want to hear from you by leaving your comment below.

Happy learning.

Cheers.
