Thank you a lot for your answer , I saw this post but spoke about Mac/Apple version. I tried to follow instructions but nothing happens

On Windows, the arrowheads files is located at C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator CC 2019\Support Files\Required\Resources\en_GB

Follow the instructions in it, then save your version of the file at C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Illustrator CC 2019\Plug-ins

You need to have Administrator rights.

According to the Help file the procedure is like this:

https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/stroke-object.html

Customize arrowheads

To define custom arrowheads, open the Arrowheads.ai file, which is located under ShowPackageContent\Required\Resources\<locale>\ (for Mac) and \Support Files\Required\Resources\<locale>\ (for Windows). Follow the instructions in the file to create custom arrowheads.

Place the updated Arrowheads.ai file at: <Illustrator home>\Plug-ins\ and avoid replacing the existing Arrowheads.ai file.
