Make .pln and .bpn Windows file icons more distiguishable

Not applicable
Please make the standard Windows icons more distinguishable. Like completelety red .bpn icon instead of the tiny red arrow.

There's not really a need to see them.
These are purely a backup of your last save, so should you accidentally make a save when you shouldn't have or sometimes when a file goes corrupt, you have a reserve file you can open.

For example I have used the .bpn to create superseded copies of models when I have forgotten to create them before implementing major changes. Much easier to track than file states on a server or if you do not have file states.

This is the same on the Mac. The .bpn icon needs to be updated to be significantly different.
