    Default Image folder-icon

    Hello,

    How to change the folder from Javafx application located in the "/dist" folder

    I created a javafx application, but I don't want the look of the application on my computer to be a photo from a Java server?

    I don't understand the problem.
    Is this a problem with the program loading an imageicon from the wrong folder when it executes?
    Or is it a problem with the icon that is given to a shortcut that starts the program?
    Or what?
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    Is that the icon the OS gives to the shortcut to your app?

    On windows, Right-click on the shortcut and select Properties. On the Shortcut tab, there is a button near the bottom to Change Icon

    Are you using a Windows OS?
    Are you asking about the icon for a Shortcut?

    yes, I'm using Windows 10, but I don't have the "Customize" option in the property, and that changes the image of the folder

    The icon for many files is for the command/program that is used to open the file. For example for .txt files the icon will be for some text editor. All .txt files will have the same icon.
    For .jar files the icon is for the java.exe program.
    I don't know it you can change the icon for an individual .jar file because the icon is for the java.exe program.
    If you create a shortcut to execute the jar file, the icon for the shortcut can be changed as I explained above.
