Apps :: How To Get Image ( Jpeg / Png ) Files From Large Desktop Icons

Oct 24, 2015

I'm trying to create some custom buttons for my PC using Rainmeter, and part of what I need is high resolution/quality icons from the programs I use. I notice that for quite a few programs, since I've set my icons to large, come up very nicely on my desktop, but I can't seem to find them of the same quality on the Internet. So, how can I take whatever file it is that creates this icon, and convert it into a high resolution jpeg or png file so I can edit it?

Text Files From Desktop Converted To JPEG

Mar 5, 2016

All of a sudden all the folders and files (mainly text) on my desktop have disappeared.

After a long search I was able to find them in : usersuserAppDataRoamingAdobeBridgeCS4Cache256Desktop6E309C78.

All the files are saved as .jpg and they really are images, so changing the file extension does not bring them back to text.

In reply to Pinaki Mohanty's post on April 6, 2013

I tried this and it didn't work. But together with what I did next it probably worked.

Open up the folder with the pictures and click on the View tab
Next click on Options to the far right
Then Click on Change folder and search options
This opens up an options menu
Navigate to the view tab
uncheck the box that says Always show icons, never thumbnails
And Check the box that says Display file icon on thumbnails.

Will Not Open PDF Or JPEG Files

Aug 3, 2015

I upgraded to W10 this morning, and since then, although everything seems to be OK, it will not open any PDF or JPEG files. I get an error message for the JPEG something like, " illegal operation attempted on a registry key that has been marked for deletion"

For the PDF files it says, "invalid value for registry".

As all of my work files are in PDF format.

Opening Files (JPEG / MOV) Times Out Since Last Update

Dec 13, 2015

Since the latest windows 10 update a couple of days ago, I get time-outs when I try opening .jpegs .mov's and so on. About every third time I double click a file, the system just loads and after about 10 seconds I get a time-out message (in German: Der Wartevorgang wurde abgebrochen) and I am unable to view it.

I did several restarts, updated drivers but still same problem. as a filmmaker, this is very annoying to me!

My system:
Windows 10
Version 1511 (Build 10586.0)
Intel Core i7 5700 HQ Quad Core 2,7GHz

How To Make All Folders Large Icons

Nov 20, 2015

I can't believe I can't find this solution online. I've seen like 8 tutorials and none of them have worked. I have my Surface Pro 2 and 4, and basically, I want to make it more touch friendly. For the last 2 years I have been going into a folder and making it "large" or "medium" icons; but I did it for the same folders every time. Now, I just got my Surface Pro 4 and I just want ALL the folders to be like that by default and change the ones I don't want when I need it.

How can I do it!? Most places on the net say "right click folder, customize, optimize for pictures" and apply to all subfolders, but it doesn't work on my desktop, my surface pro 2 nor my surface pro 4. So... how can I achieve this?

Performance :: Excessively Large System Files

Jan 9, 2016

I have two excessively large system files located in C:Windows:


The first is 43.4 GB and the second is 26.6 GB. Together, they constitute 30% of my total disk usage or over 42% if you ignore my Linux VM.

Standard questions:
- What are they / what do they do?
- Why are they so big?
- Can I delete them?

I'm Running Windows 10 with a clean install originating from a late insider build. My present OS build is 10586.36. More information is available upon request.

JPG Icons To Show Image Thumbnails Instead Of Generic Icons

Sep 8, 2015

Since updating to Windows 10, whenever I open file folders to view jpgs, the files' thumbnails are a generic blue mountain icon instead of thumbnails of the images themselves. How do I get the icons to go back to being thumbnail images again? Is there a command or menu option that will change this for all jpgs in my folders rather than having to change one by one?

Disable Large Icon Over Pointer When Dragging Files?

Aug 4, 2015

I love Windows 10 but this may be the most annoying feature so far for me and I have no clue how to turn it off. I've searched online and all results concern windows 8/7/vista... and not only were there no real solutions but there is nothing about Windows 10. Never encountered this in Win7 (and never used Win8).

the problem here is I can't see where I'm dropping the files, I use the list view and manage a lot of files this damn icon hides the folders!

USB 3 ExFat Drive With Large Video Files Crash Explorer

Oct 21, 2015

I am a video director. I have numerous 1TB drives, USB 3. They are formatted with ExFAT. Files are typically large: 50Gig and better. Worked and readable fine in windows 7. Could read, write, edit with them. But not in Win10. Plug it drive, it is recognized. But once you start to click files, computer freezes. Happens in at least 2 different different Win10 computers, one upgraded, one original install. If I open an application first, like quicktime player, can see files, run them, rename them, copy them. But in Explorer: freeze/crash.

Apps :: Desktop Icons Super Small Size

Dec 30, 2015

So, I decided to just do a reinstall of Windows 10 after having a couple of issues and downloading software such as iObit that is questionable at best (just found that out, glad I did some research online) and everything has been going really smoothly in terms of updating programs, apps, etc., but I just found this weird glitch or bug if you will. Take a look at the screenshot attached. Doing the simple ctrl+mouse wheel will make the desktop icons larger or smaller, but for some reason the text size is still SUPER small. My resolution settings are normal for Windows 10 (250% recommended) and I've never encountered this issue before.

Apps Can't See Files On Desktop

Nov 21, 2015

So, this started about two or three weeks ago, but I haven't really had time to check into it. Apps (all that I have tried recently) don't see files I have on the desktop, if I need to browse to them.

Example: I scan a sheet and save as a .pdf (or .jpg, or .tif, or whatever else) to the desktop. Then I try to attach it to an email. I browse for the attachment from within the email (Windows 10 Mail or an online webmail) and the desktop is empty in the explorer window. However, if I minimize everything, all my icons, including the file I'm looking for are present. I have double checked in the explorer window that I am looking for all files, or a particular type of file. It doesn't matter.

From the desktop itself, I can click on this .pdf file and it will open in Adobe Acrobat Reader. However, if I open Adobe Acrobat Reader and attempt to browse to the file to open it, the desktop is empty.

The same happens in Adobe Lightroom, when I want to import an image file that is located on the desktop.

It also happens when I am browsing for a file to upload to Dropbox, Box, or various other places for work or home.

This happens on all networks and it happens whether or not Windows Defender or my antivirus is active or not.

However, if these files are located elsewhere (Documents, or C:, or D:, for instance) everything works as it should, without a problem. where to start?

Desktop Disappearing - No Live Panels / Desktop Icons And Action Center Would Not Appear

Feb 10, 2016

Running Windows 10 on a Dell Venue 8 pro Tablet. Several months ago, and just yesterday I lost my desktop. Turned on the Tablet went to the desktop picture after signing in and ... nothing. No live panels, no desktop icons, the action center would not appear. Just the desktop picture. If I tapped on the picture, the icons would appear for a split second. Anything pinned to the bar along the bottom would work. I was able to get to system restore and restore to a couple of days ago. That worked. What happened. Don't really know how to fix other than system restore.

Customization :: Setting Desktop With One Image From Theme?

Jan 28, 2016

With Windows 7 I had the ability to go into the Personalization settings and uncheck all of the images within a Microsoft Theme (such as "Waterfalls" or "Beaches") that I did not want to see. This gave me the ability to choose just one image from a theme to set as a permanent desktop background.

This menu was found by right-clicking on the particular theme I had chosen. In Windows 10 that menu is gone....

Therefore the themes just continue going from one image to the next and I have no control over which images I want, setting a timeframe for them to change (Used to have options such as 1 hour, 6 hours, 24 hours etc...), or the ability to customize the desktop background in the way I want.

Is this a Windows 10 design flaw or am I missing something? Why am I no longer able to customize a desktop background theme and choose 1 image anymore?
