    Default program on thumbnail suddeny Blank?


    I don't know what happened but the little picture in the bottom right that as always showing the photoshop thing is blank? It opens correct in Photoshop so there seems nothing wrong with the assignment of the default file association i suspect? I want that blanco thing gone and my Photoshop's icon back!!! Any suggestions??

    right click on it
    select > change icon
    if you want a specific photoshop icon,
    browse to the location where the photoshop executable is located

    Or, go to settings, System > Default Apps

    I think my question was not clear enough? The default application is fine but the photoshop icon is Blank instead of the normal blue icon or what it's called? This is a .psd-filetype and i can only change icons of file-extensions with a third party freeware program like for instance filetypeman but that's not my question... I only want that small blank thing changed in a photoshop icon - not a complete new file-extension-icon.

    It's hard to find a solution because i don't know how to call it? It's the default program that opens - for instance in my example - a blank A4 portrait template. Only that little thing in at the bottom right? I already have reset my icon-cache but that didn't do the trick. If annybody knows a link for more info or a name should also be helpfull?

    I have occasionally had that happen to desktop icons and would love to know what is going on and how to stop it from happening. But it's pretty easy to fix for application icons.

    You can just right click on the shortcut, select "Change Icon" and choose the appropriate one. But you have to know where that appropriate icon live. I find it easier to just recreate the shortcut.( I apologize for the details. You probably already know how to create a desktop icon, but just in case, ...)


    1. Right click on the icon, look in the "Shortcut" tab (which should automatically open), and copy the contents of the "Start in" field. (This isn't really necessary, but it will make step 3 easier.)
    2. Delete the desktop icon.
    3. In File Explorer, find the executable. It will be in the folder whose location you copied in step 1.
      Right click-and-hold the .exe file, drag to the desktop, release the mouse button, and click on "Create shortcuts here".

    This should build a shortcut with the correct icon, but there may be times when it doesn't.

    Thanks for your reply pokeefe0001. The way i fixed it was uninstall evertything of Adobe and reinstall. I did find a program that had an editor to change the icon at the bottom. So now i know that icon thing that is showing at the bottom is called the'default file handler. I don't know if it will work but i found a program called 'Defaults Program Editor'.That offers more solutions for understanding things!
