Windows tray new mail icon wasn't updated like the macOS and Linux ones


When the tray icon for new email ( MenuItem-Inbox-Full-NewItems@2x.png) was updated for Linux and macOS with a more readable icon:
The Windows tray icon wasn’t updated. The same reasons as to why the icon was changed (readability) also applies to Windows, so that’s why I flag it as a bug.

To Reproduce…

Steps to reproduce the behavior:

Install Mailspring on Windows and on Linux and compare when new mail arrives.

Expected Behavior

The icon should be the same.



  • OS and Version: Windows 10 (20H2)
  • Installation Method: Installer
  • Mailspring Version: 1.8.0-8983dca2

Additional Context

I added this as a Feature Request earlier:

… But realized later this problem existed because the developers didn’t update the win32 folder system tray assets like they did for linux and darwin.
