Windows 7: Steam internet shortcut icons randomly become small

Steam internet shortcut icons randomly become small

On my desktop I have a folder which contains shortcuts to all my games, lots of them from Steam. As many of you know, Steam shortcuts are actually Internet Shortcuts. For some reason, very randomly, the icons of some of these games will go small. In order to fix it, I find I have to create a new shortcut through Steam. Is there any way to avoid this, or an explanation to why it is happening? Here is an image of what I mean:

All three games are through Steam, and for weeks on end had the proper sized icon, then randomly today I noticed that the Liberty City Stories icon pictured on the far right has shrunk quite a bit... How can this be fixed?

Thanks in advance all.

Hi KS17

Is this only on your games and not any other internet shortcuts?

Hi. Sorry I cannot be sure as of now, I have never had Internet shortcuts before with custom icons. However, I will make a few in a folder and see what happens. In the meantime, I found that renaming the .ico file I was using as the icon, then changing the icon of the shortcut made the problem disappear. However, it will happen again!
