Hello Forte,

It's still there, but could you let me know what user folder this is for?

Did you open directly to the C:\Users\(user-name) folder location?

Did you do what was in the TIP box in OPTION TWO if one of them was the user folder that you wanted to change the icon of?

Hello Fizpop, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Could you post a screenshot of what you see instead?

What happens if you manually type in the full path of the .ico file that you wanted to use and press Enter instead?

As a test, does it work properly if you try this in a new user account?

For now, run a sfc /scannow command to see if it may help if there is a corrupted system file causing this.

Hi I have the same issue with Yankie i believe, when i try to merge the registry files, it says was not able to completely write to registry or something similar to that, do you know of any way to fix this? or is it the registry file itself not working?
