Windows 7: Icons better looking in my desktop "only"

Icons better looking in my desktop "only"

I've never experienced that in previous versions of windows. It's weird.
Even if i use the more options button of any folder to drag the cursor
from content to extra large icons, i cannot reach the perfection & accurate
display of icons that my desktop offers .. .

You can see my *.txt icon on my desktop with proper lines (sinking.txt)
& the one in a directory (noise.txt) with lines that aren't symetric &
don't respect the original icon .. . & changing size view of
folder icons doesn't help .. .

Strange, i uploaded it to ************** & i can see it in this thread
So i attached the file in the forum this time, double click it several times
to see it in its full size, & use the zoomer if needed.

Ok thats better.
I can see what your saying but I cant see a lot of difference between the 2 icons quality. Some of it may be due to the 2 different background colours blue on your desktop and white in explorer.
You can try this see if it helps - Icon Cache - Rebuild

I'm not sure what you are getting at but I think you are confusing program icons (on your desktop) with file icons in the folders you show. They are just a different set of icons. If you look at the folders containing those programs with explorer the icons are the same as on the desktop.

Its the noise.txt icon in explorer and the seeking.txt shortcut on the desktop screen are not quite the same theres a small amount of detail missing.I couldn't even see any difference until I got the magnifying glass out but my eyes aren't great

Yes Danny. I see what you mean the one in the folder is definitely not as clear. Neither of them look like the standard text file icon either.
