Hi guys need help with swapping the automatically generated icon with my own in Android Studio?

So I'm finished building my first app, it's a very simple fact one. I have tested it and I am almost ready to deploy it, I just need to change the icon. I tried the steps suggested in the video. I copied and pasted my icon in and I tried holding down alt while moving the file. I have not been able to override the file at all. It keep giving me the option to copy my logo there, then it will not build. Is there another way that I can go about doing this ? Or perhaps something I missed ? Thanks in advance.
