The icon in the title bar is too small, so I want to add Image instead of Icon.

Hi Jacob,

If you don't like to use the icon, the single way to do this is to make a custom title bar, I think...

You can use this code: This is the XAML code:

<Window x:Class="WpfApplication1.MainWindow"



Title="MainWindow" Height="350" Width="525" WindowStyle="None">


    <Border BorderBrush="#FF00860C" BorderThickness="3" Name="border1" Margin="0,30,0,0"></Border>

    <Rectangle Name="rectangle1" Stroke="#FF2446FF" StrokeThickness="3" Height="30" VerticalAlignment="Top" MouseDown="rectangle1_MouseDown">


            <LinearGradientBrush EndPoint="0.5,1" StartPoint="0.5,0">

                <GradientStop Color="White" Offset="0.013" />

                <GradientStop Color="White" Offset="1" />

                <GradientStop Color="#FF7CAEFF" Offset="0.477" />




    <Button Content="X" Height="24" HorizontalAlignment="Right" Margin="0,3,3,0" Name="button1" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="23" Click="button1_Click" />

    <Button Content="□" Height="24" HorizontalAlignment="Right" Margin="0,3,26,0" Name="button2" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="23" Click="button2_Click" />

    <Button Content="__" Height="24" HorizontalAlignment="Right" Margin="0,3,49,0" Name="button3" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="23" Click="button3_Click" />

    <TextBlock Height="23" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="102,4,0,0" Name="textBlock1" Text="Custom Title bar" VerticalAlignment="Top" FontSize="18" MouseDown="rectangle1_MouseDown"/>

    <Image Height="22" HorizontalAlignment="Left" Margin="8,4,0,0" Name="image1" Stretch="Fill" VerticalAlignment="Top" Width="26" />


And this is the C# code:

using System;

using System.Collections.Generic;

using System.Linq;

using System.Text;

using System.Windows;

using System.Windows.Controls;

using System.Windows.Data;

using System.Windows.Documents;

using System.Windows.Input;

using System.Windows.Media;

using System.Windows.Media.Imaging;

using System.Windows.Navigation;

using System.Windows.Shapes;

namespace WpfApplication1


    /// <summary>

    /// Interaction logic for MainWindow.xaml

    /// </summary>

    public partial class MainWindow : Window


        public MainWindow()




        private void button1_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)




        private void button2_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)


if (this.WindowState == WindowState.Maximized)

                this.WindowState = WindowState.Normal;


                this.WindowState = WindowState.Maximized;


        private void button3_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)


            this.WindowState = WindowState.Minimized;


        private void rectangle1_MouseDown(object sender, MouseButtonEventArgs e)
