    What about tiff files?


    This registry editor fix definitely worked for .jpeg, .jpg, .png, .bmp, and .gif files on my computer. THANK YOU!!! But I still have a problem:

    For .tif and .tiff files, the procedure did not work, and it seemed to mess up the registry for these particular file extensions. Can you help me, parhamsan?

    Hey dbott, i found a solution for you. Here is what you have to do:

    1-Run Regedit.exe as admin. (You should also be logged in as admin obviously).
    2-Make sure to backup your registry keys before you do this method (in case something goes wrong, don't blame me for it!!!!!).
    3-Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.tif
    4-O
    pen the .tif tree and click on "UserChoice".
    5-Right click on "UserChoice" folder and click on "Permissions..."
    6-Click on Advanced.
    7-
    Tick "Replace all child object permission entries with inheritable permission entries from this object" and click "Apply", "Yes", "Ok", "Ok".


    If you have done this and nothing been resolved or your UserChoice folder has disappeared don't panic, do the following:

    Right click on empty space, "New" and then "String Value"

    The name should be "ProgId" and the data should be "
    AppX43hnxtbyyps62jhe9sqpdzxn1790zetc" (without the quotation marks). See the screen capture below:

    Important!!!! Make sure to restart you computer after the "ProgId" value has changed in the Registry.

    Now you might face an issue before reaching step 8, I will show you the example on the .tiff file:

    1a- Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.tiff
    2a- Open the .tiff tree and click on "UserChoice".
    3a- Right click on "UserChoice" folder and click on "Permissions..."
    4a- Click on Advanced.
    5a-
    Tick "Replace all child object permission entries with inheritable permission entries from this object" and click "Apply", "Yes", "Ok", "Ok".
    6a- If your "UserChoice" folder didn't disappear after this step, try to change the "ProgID" string in the "UserChoice" folder to "AppX43hnxtbyyps62jhe9sqpdzxn1790zetc" (without the quotation marks) manually.
    7a- If you received the following message: "Cannot edit ProgId: Error writing the value's new contents."

    Right click on .tiff folder tree and click on "Permissions..."

    8a- Click on Advanced.
    9a-
    Tick "Replace all child object permission entries with inheritable permission entries from this object" and click "Apply", "Yes", "Ok", "Ok".

    Now change the "ProgID" string in the "UserChoice" folder to "AppX43hnxtbyyps62jhe9sqpdzxn1790zetc" (without the quotation marks) manually.

    Restart you computer

    Let me know if this works for you.

    I registered here just to thanks parhamsan, the fix worked like a charm and my icons are not white anymore. I didn't need to open any file to take effect. Thanks a lot for the fix.

    parhamsan, your instructions worked PERFECTLY! I was able to address the "tif" and "tiff" icon issues using your new fix. So all my image icons are now displaying correctly. Thank you so much for your quick, smart, and very-easy-to-understand help! By the way, I never had the issue you mentioned where you wrote: "Now you might face an issue before reaching step 8...." I just restarted my machine after each registry fix and the tif icons appeared correctly. Thank you again!

    dbott, i'm glad it worked for you. The issue happened on my PC but not on my laptop, but just wanted to mention it in the forum for the people getting the same error message "Cannot edit ProgId: Error writing the value's new contents" so they can use the extra steps to fix the issue.
    Cheers!!!
