To run in fullscreen there are many options, the "hardcore way" it' to change screen settings calling win API (see NeHe.gamedev.net for some sample code).

The other problem isn't that related to OGL, but anyway, the following is my personal solution:

wc.hInstance = GetModuleHandle(NULL);
wc.hIcon = LoadIcon(wc.hInstance, MAKEINTRESOURCE(101));

where wc is the window class and 101 is the resource number of the icon.

hope this helps...
