In your WPF window's Icon property you can set icon. This will be shown at taskbar while running you application.

You can also set icon at application level means after installation the icon of your application's exe or shortcut.

Go to Application Property Page in Application Tab under Resources group box you can set your desired icon.

I am not looking for tray icon, I want to replace the icon when app is minimized to system taskbar.
you just shut your mouth if you don't understand what I am talking about.

<Window x:Class="ReactivatePhoneNumber_WindowsApp.MainWindow"
         ShowInTaskbar="True" Icon="/image/new_logo_doo_icon.ico" >
