I've tried registry edits, tiny apps, but nothing seems to work.I'd really like the default .txt file icon back, but I use Sublime Text 3 to open them by default, and thus this app's icon takes over all my .txt file icons.How can I make W10 revert to the original extension's icon while it's default app is another program?
Windows 10 always keeps putting back the drop shadow for the label under the desktop icons. I go into System -> Advanced System Settings -> Performance and uncheck "Use drop shadows for icon labels on the desktop". Click apply. If I do this at after logging off the shadows disappear. However at some random point in time a few minutes after it just puts them back on.
I have used the usual route to changing a default icon in "Properties" for internet shortcut(s). However, changing one file icon strangely does not change all the rest. Is this a bug? Is there a workround?
Its possible to customize one or more folders to a specific file view like "list" or "details" for example? Whenever I close the folder or go back to the previous folder the default system sets back default view which was adopted by the system or the view that was defined by me for all the folders in: Folder Options -> View -> Apply to Folders.
I created a new folder on the desktop and I can't change its icon to a one I downloaded. selecting the icon from the stock list (shell32.dll) works fine though. I tried with another folder in different location, still no luck. however, when I created a shortcut to the folder I placed on the desktop, I can change its icon to the custom one just fine. I just wanna have a folder with a blank icon.
edit: I fixed the issue. turns out Windows didn't like the fact that there was an "ą" letter in the icon path.
I have a file on the desktop for Windows 10 Forums The color logo has been replaced with a generic globe with the shortcut arrow. the other W 10 F articles and shortcuts have also changed to the globe. I have other Icons that have changed on me. Question: How can I change or add the icon I want to a file or shortcut and make sure it stays that way?
A friend of mine who recently upgraded to Windows 10 is legally blind and is struggling with some accessibility options. Here is what we are struggling with: We need to change the font color of desktop icons to black. Certain contrasts are more visible for some impairments and in this case, a yellow background with black bold icon text is the best condition.
What I've tried : Tried high contrast theme / modeTried to modify regedit based on a suggestion for 8.1 here.
Where I've looked : Control Panel - System - Advanced System Settings - Advanced - PerformancePersonalize - Change Desktop IconsPersonalize - ColorsControl Panel - PersonalizationDisplay SettingsThemes - Theme Settings
I was able to get the text black when using the white high contrast mode, but that option won't work. While it does change the icon text to black, it also takes over many other options that deliver a less than desirable contrast for the user. We originally were thinking we could start with the high contrast theme, save as another theme and then systematically roll back the changes we didn't like, leaving the black text. Does not work - when in high contrast mode it effectively locks out your ability to make certain changes.
I have Pinned a few sites to the start menu using Microsoft Edge. My problem is that all of them have the same "E" edge (internet explorer) icon. So unless I keep them at large size, or remember in what order they were pinned/arranged, I have no clue which pin is for which site.
When you click "Pin To Start" in the options menu in Edge, where are those pins stored?
Working on desktop Lenova computer. I was updating the computer drivers when one of the drivers froze, I click on cancel. I tried the internet and it stated No Internet Connection. I went into Device manager and did the unthinkable. I deleted everything inside the Network Adapters, including the words Network Adapters. In other words, no Network Adapters are showing in Device Manager.
First, I would like to know how can I replace the words Network Adapters in the Device Manager menu, and download the two adapters that were there in the beginning. Lastly, how to get back the Internet to work again.
I did download w 10. I didn't like it so went back to 8.1.
Did that ok. I uninstalled the KB3035583...that went ok but the windows icon keeps coming back on my taskbar. When a update appears to be downloaded. how do I check the number of it first to see what it is. I think I might of let it go through last night when
I was shutting down. ]Is this 10 going to keep coming up? Anyway to get rid of it permanently. I intend to stay with my 8.1 as I don't like 10 and it disabled a lot of my stuff when I had it.
Rolled back to Win 7, now I cant connect to the internet.Checked device manager and all shows good with no errors Wi-Fi shows connected to network. IE, Firefox and chrome will not connect.Of course I was way to smart to do any kind of back up.Was thinking about taking back to factory specs, just have to find the rescue media I created when laptop was new.
Slip of the keyboard. I unpinned the folder icon that comes standard with Win 10 on the taskbar. I replaced it with File Explorer but it's not the same format. The folder icon that comes with Win 10 on the taskbar brings up the Libraries on the left, then the right side, I think, had folder and file listings. Don't remember - I did this about a month ago.
is there anyway to get a language pack for windows 10 to change the language back to English? I was able to manually download a language pack but I wasn't able to install it through CMD. I haven't bought the Windows 10 pro to change it for me, but was wondering if I am able to change it manually on the current version of Win 10
I have an Acer ASpire laptop which after updating to windows 10, the screen displays the recycle bin, the cursor, the lower toolbar, it cannot connect to internet and the sound icon has an "X"..I pulled the battery to see if it would continue but to no avail but did get a notice saying " desktop not available etc ect"
I can right click on the screen and get context menu's to appear but nothing that I can get any further with.If I right click on the sreen and select "Display Settings" I get a message saying" This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action etc etc".
I am getting the yellow-triangle warning on my internet icon in the system tray with the caption (upon click) "no internet access" even though my internet is working fine. I had this problem when I was running Win 7 and it still persists after my update to Win 10. Rebooting my modem and router sometimes clears the warning. Rebooting my PC does not clear the problem but sometimes a full SHUT DOWN and then restart will.
I managed to change the search engine to Google in the new Win10 search located in the menu and also in Edge. However, the little address toolbar, that can be added to the taskbar by putting a checkmark in the address toolbar after right clicking on the taskbar and choosing toolbars has suddenly switched to Bing as the search engine. I would love to have this set at Google as it always was. I find this toolbar so much more convenient than the one that came with the new win10 menu. I have already turned off Cortana over there.
