Windows 7: Icon Thumbnail appears to small

20 Jun 2013   #21

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

I have tried both of the methods. Method:
-takes a lot of time, for conversion and uploading.

IcoFX Method:
-works fine at first, but then when doing a batch conversion, some icons still appears to be small
-also, you cannot set the default size of the icon, when the largest resolution is 256x256, it still goes to 128x128

convertico takes less than a few of seconds to convert,
you must have a very slow internet if it is taking too long to upload.

if you want .
place the icons in a zip folder and upload them to the forum. i will resize, add transparency to them for you ,convert them and re upload to you.

I have EXACTLY the same problem as OP:

On the left you see one Icon that is small on my desktop as well as in the folder (even if it is big enough)
and you can see that some icons appear small on the desktop while big in the Icon-folder (Amnesia), and others appear big on the desktop while small in the folder (Burnout Paradise)
It's totally random...
When I rename the icons they get bigger, but change back randomly after a reboot or when I change the name to what it was before.
I tried clearing the icon-cache, changing the size of the image cache and clearing the thumbnail-cache - nothing worked.

All images are either downloaded directly as an .ico-file or converted from a png via ConvertIcon! (the size-problem appears with both icon-types)

I recently (last weekend) formatted my hard-drives and reinstalled Windows - all icons worked perfectly before this reinstall
