2019 Patch E: To switch the icon, you must enter the IDDQD combination when the antivirus "About" window is open and in focus.

When version 2020 is regular released, when it is ready, same feature.

Richbuff,
Can you please explain/detail what is meant by: "enter the IDDQD combination, when the antivirus "About" window is open and in focus."?

Hey, when this window above is open - press on the keyboard IDDQD and the icon should make the switch.

You can try also IDKFA for the old pig sound, but it seems it will not work in W10...

Hey Harlan4096,
Thank you, however, before we "switch" on piggy sounds, is there a way of reversing in case we get sick of oink-oink-grunt-grunt?

Hi,@FLOOD
Yes there is. You need to rerun the command to return default settings.

Right, typing again any of the 2 key combinations, will revert to default settings:)

Thank you Harlan4096! :)
Really didn't want to get stuck with an animal sound that couldn't be reversed, bad enough with dog that barks at shadows 😃

Followup question, as W7 is reaching EOL will the Red shield & Pig sound be "made" to work in W10?
Thanks!

Hi Harlan4096,
Thanks!
Does that mean we should ask the lab or.... 🤔?

@FLOOD the icon will work, but there is no sound.

To change the default audio signal to the "pig squeal", type IDKFA in the About window.Notification sounds are not played in Microsoft Windows 10.

As I don't have Patch E on either of my machines, I hope this isn't a dumb question.

By changing to the Red K icon in the About field, does that then change the tray icon ?

Hi, yes, the tray icon is changed, that's the main idea.
