    How I have done this was as follows:
    Save all current work as stated everywhere
    alt cnt del to get to the task manager
    go to the processes tab and right click on explorer.exe and choose end process tree



    then again, alt cnt del to get to the task manager and choose file new task


    type explorer and hit enter and that should do it. At least it does for me.

    Hello econnerly, and welcome to Seven Forums. :)

    That would be to only restart explorer.

    Restarting explorer to refresh them could help if there's not any icon corruption. Otherwise, you would most likely need to rebuild the icon cache.

    Thanks for the welcome.

    You are correct. Sometimes I forget to plug in my thumb drive before starting my office computer and the shortcut icons come up blank. My computer takes FOREVER to log onto the network, so thats why a restart is out of the question for me.

    If you like, you could add a "Restart Explorer" context menu to make it easier to do as needed.

    Desktop icons still wrong displayed


    All tutorial on page one I've done it right, and the desktop icons displayed correctly.. that's good! But after restarting again there was incorrectly.. What's up?
    To be clear, I mean this only applies to program icons that I've installed, while belonging to 'original Windows icon' all remains correct.
    It's always wrong despite repeatedly run the option 2 (same for option 1), first repair is good, but the next restart incorrectly.. I'm confused why it cannot be permanently.

    Could someone help to this problem, please

    Hello Jacky, :)

    Does refreshing (F5) the desktop help show the correct icon?

    If this is a shortcut, does creating a new shortcut work properly instead?

    If this is a shortcut does this happen to all shortcuts? If so, did you change the shortcut arrow overlay?

    Ohh silly me.. Problem fix now, I forgot that I ever roll-back system restore where it's still active 'no shortcut arrow', then after restore to default now back to normal permanent display.
    Thanks Brink has reminded me, and my problem solved now.
