Windows 7: Libraries Icons - Change

PNG files work best. Checking the box (boxed in red below) for Vista usually works just fine.

My library icons on the left will change every so often. Sometimes they are identical to the ones on the right but most of the time they are as displayed in my snippet.

The XML is pointing to the correct icon (the ones on the right side).

So what gives?

Hello Streetwolf,

This is normal in the left image since it is using small icons. When using a larger icon size in the main part of the window, the library icons will then have the glass shelf included.

At what location was the right image taken at, and what are the folder view settings for it?

right side is "C:\Users\Gary\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Libraries"

The thing is the left side at times will have the same icon as the right side. It can flip-flop a few times a day.

Strange. I'm not sure why you would have the glass shelves with the small icons. Mine do not unless I use larger icons.

here's a fairly vanilla W7 that I run under VBOX. Same arrangement as before.

Maybe be a difference in your copy of Windows 7? Where did you get it at?

This is the ISO file name and verison I got from the latest RTM version from TechNet.

I got it from Torrent. I too am a subscriber of Technet so I just grabbed the key. As far as I know all the Hashes matched.

My virtual W7 is from the same source with a different key. Gotta love Technet.
