Windows 7: Programme Folder Icons

26 Oct 2010   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Programme Folder Icons

My apologies if this is the wrong place for this, but I've just bought a new PC which has Win 7 installed so just finding my way about!

My old PC was running XP and all my programme shortcuts in the Quick Launch Toolbar had relevant icons on them. However, although some shortcuts I've put on my 7 QLT have appeared with the relevant icons, for instance FF and TB, 3 other programmes have just come up as blank cream coloured folders. So is there a way to get the proper icons instead of the blanks?

Thanks in anticipation.

You need to pin the program's .exe icon to the task bar. It sounds like you're pinning the program's folder. The .exe icon is the actual icon that launches the program.
