Retrieving icon of real app inside ApplicationHostFrame

Recommended Posts

In my application I retrieve the icon of an executable file with the system list icons and the SHGetFileInfo. All ok, but in Windows 10 apps run inside ApplicationHostFrame.exe, that has a standard .exe icon, even Edge run embedded in this.

How to get the real icon of eg. Edge, Messenger and any other app for Windows 10?


In the image an explicative example. Normal apps have their executable which I use to extract their actual icons, apps embedded in ApplicationHostFrame not (but when you search their executable file you can see the correct icon).
