Hello Sheymes,

The icon that is displayed on a file is dependent on the default program you selected to open the file with.

If you like, you can download and merge the .reg file for any listed file extension in the tutorial below that you want to restore the default association for.

Default File Type Associations - Restore

Hope this helps,
