Cant change my user profile folder icon anymore.
I know this seems like a trivial thing, but just curious if anyone can figure out why it broke.
Originally, I went into C:\Users and went into the Properties of my profile folder. Went to the Customize tab, then Change Icon and chose a custom icon.
After doing this, when I would click on the start button and hover over my name in the upper right part of the start menu, the icon would change to that of my custom icon (visual explanation of what I mean:
Anyway, now the problem... it worked fine for several months, then it suddenly stopped showing my custom icon. As you can see in that picture it went back to the default generic icon when I hover over my name.
So I go back into the Properties of my C:\Users\David folder, back to Customize, but then beside the Change Icon button, the sample of what it will look like still shows my custom icon, yet it's not displaying anymore. For giggles, I click change icon and again browse to my custom icon, and hit OK on everything. But it's just not working.
I've tried choosing to restore the default icon option, and then change it to something custom again. I've tried different custom icons, Ive tried using native windows icons. In the GUI it appears as if my choice was taken, yet on the start menu the icon continues to just be the default one.
Just curious if anyone would have any suggestions. TiA!
