Windows 7: Download Folder Icon

Download Folder Icon

Hi,

My download folder icon is not in sync. It's still showing a preview of a download which I don't have anymore (a mp3). How can I fix this?



Cheers

If it bothers you so much, simply clear/rebuild your icon cache. That should do the trick.

Your suggested solution unfortunately did not work.

Hello Dutchcoffee,

See if clearing the thumbnail cache to reset it may be able to fix this for you.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

This is very odd. I just tried your suggested solution, Brink, however, it did not fix the issue.

This may be uber simplistic, but -- have you manually tried to delete it? If so, what happens?

Also, in Task Manager, is the download shown there, in either Applications, (and if so, can you end the task?) or in Processes (and if so, can you end the process)?

Dutchcoffee,

As a test to see if this may get rid of it, open Notepad, click on File (menu bar) and Open, then select All Files (*.*) above the Open and Cancel buttons. Next navigate to and open your My Downloads folder to see if you may see a ghost of the .mp3 file. If you do, then right click on it and click on Delete, and close the Open and Notepad windows.

Sometimes a ghost file will not show in the normal Windows Explorer window to be able to easily delete, but will in a "Open" or "Save As" type dialog box.

That, unfortunately, did not work either. I am really stumped as to what is causing this.

This may be a given, but just in case, did you reboot your machine after clearing the icon cache?
