Embed an icon in exe

I have a solution which produces an exe. By default, when you view the exe in file explorer, you see the generic exe icon that Windows uses. In Visual Studio, if I want to change that, I can right-click on the project, go to Properties, then go to Application. Under there is an option to choose how application resources will be managed. I can enter the icon that I want, then once compiled, view the exe in explorer and I see my icon instead of the generic Windows icon.

Is there some equivalent in Rider? I can't seem to find it.

Thank you for your request.
Unfortunately, this is not possible in Rider at the moment, but here is a feature request: Rider-18888. Please, feel free to upvote it to raise its priority.
