Can confirm the same. It looks normal in the start menu though

For me the same! In the system tray it’s also cropped:

How does it look in the current version? Is it better?

I’m on the latest version, and for me the app icon is a little bit better, though still pixelated:

The system tray icon, though, is not better at all. Compared to other icons, the Anytype logo is still weirdly cut off:

For me it looks fine on Windows 11 with Anytype for Windows 0.26.21-alpha in the taskbar:

Systray does not look great, and seems to have a different shape:

Mine looks square in the taskbar, it could be because I have it set as small buttons?

Anytype 0.33.3 is on the left, Anytype communiry shortcut (Edge) is on the right. The right one is clearly less pixelated.

So, not great, but also not terrible on Windows 11.

On Linux (GNOME), icon seems to be fine in the application grid, but is ever so slightly slightly blockier than other icons in the taskbar.

I would be grateful if you could check icons on your platforms, I could not find the correct icon size, all current available icons are located here: https://github.com/anyproto/anytype-ts/tree/main/electron/img

Maybe this is useful (see table with recommended resolutions):

For me, the taskbar icon simply gave up…
