How to change Opened Taskbar Icon

Hello Seven Forums friends,

I came out with the problem that whenever I open My Computer or any other folder on taskbar I see the missing icon sheet instead of a folder icon. I am not a pro in these things and I do not know how to change that icon, but this error occured when I applied IconPackager theme. All icons seems to be normal just folder icon when ever it is running taskbar does not show it. Any help would be appriciated.


I am attaching file to let you more understand what I am talking about:


As you can see in this picture I have a quick lunch icons, have running Opera, IconPackager, Chrome Icons and a Missing Opened Folder icon.

Regards,
Martis.

Hello Martis, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if rebuilding the icon cache may help.

Hope this helps,
