After Effects Icon Update

Do You miss the purple of the old After Effects Icon?


I'm on a Windows 10 PC, the current 2020 After Effects is in my task bar, I right click on it, it shows a menu, I right click on "Adobe After Effects 2020" in the pop up menu, then click on Properties in the second pop up menu.

Move to the Shortcut tab at the top, and left click the Change Icon button. You then can browse to a new icon. You can make your own, or use mine (in the ZIP folder). It might take a minute to update, but now you won't accidentally open Premiere, Animate, or Audition when you were looking for After Effects.

Here's that icon image again in case you missed it above. It's the new logo with old colors:
