Do you prefer MusicBee's default icon, or an icon matching your current skin?

I prefer MusicBee's default icon always.

Only for some more outspoken skins (very specifically themed or coloured)  I would like and use  a matching icon.

A matching MusicBee icon for every skin I use would be nice.

For skins, it is possible to include (or direct to, I'm not clear on this at the moment) a specific MusicBee icon.

(To be perfectly frank, at this very moment I am not even sure where this icon would show up exactly.
preferences > General configuration panel? MusicBee's caption bar? Windows taskbar?
Perhaps even in Windows file explorer?
I have no clue right now, but I should be able to figure that out by putting some effort into it.)



Today I realised that I perhaps should consider to create some MusicBee icons that match my skins.
But, before I do that...

I am curious if 'the average MusicBee user' even wants to have a skin changing his familiar and trusted MusicBee icon?

Until now I myself have always been quite comfortable with the default MusicBee icon always being, well, MusicBee's icon.

So before I put any effort in this at all, I am curious about other user's thoughts on this?

And... feel free to add a comment after you voted.
That will help keeping this thread alive for a while when looking at 'most recent posts'.

They show on all the places that you mentioned.

I prefer to use my own icon (just a music note):


I include some icons on my skins but you have to pick the icon manually, probably should have added the icon to the skin file but is too late for that now.
These icons have a different 16x16 image to show in the caption bar:

And the jump list:

Thanks Diego.
I think I am not going to bother with creating dedicated icons for my skins.
There doesn't seem to be that much interest, and it's not that easy to create icons that work well for all different sizes and situations.

Well, perhaps I'll do it for one skin; I often have two MusicBee's open at the same time, and a differentiating icon in the taskbar could be handy for that.
