Windows 7: System File Image Not Right - They Are Just Folders

System File Image Not Right - They Are Just Folders

Okay so basically I somehow changed the image for the system folders, Computer, Network, and Recycle Bin. Refer to picture, I just didn't include recycle bin but they are all the same image.
How would I go about changing it back to the default?


Thanks!

Welcome to the Seven Forums

Do Option 2 of this tutorial SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker it will not harm any data or programs you have installed it will try to find and repair any corrupt system files that you have. If you have changed any system files they will go back to default. You may need to do this up to 3 times with a reboot after each scan.

You may need to Icon Cache - Rebuild after the scan.

Hello Kozhaikin, and welcome to Seven Forums.

In addition, you might see if you may be able to restore their default icons using step 4 in the tutorial below in your "Desktop Icon Settings". These icons will also affect the ones in your screenshot.

Desktop Icons - Change or Restore Default Icon

Hope this helps,
Shawn
