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
        /// Interaction logic for MainWindow.xaml
        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)
