    Every usb drives gets the same icon?


    I have a strange issue. I have a used headset on my computer and mow I don't use it anymore. Problem is every time I use an usb stick (tried different ones) I get the icon from the headset. How can I change that back to the default drive icon? I'm using an usb switch so that I can use my keyboard and mouse on 2 computers.

    Clear the icon cache. You have a default icon associated with that device is all. Rebuild Icon Cache in Windows 10 | Windows 10 Tutorials

    I have cleared icon cache files but it still shows the same. Maybe I will reinstall the nuc. It is nog big deal.
