    Windows 10 not showing the actual Icon in small icon view


    Hi there,

    after looking for hours on Google to resolve my Issue, I decided to try my luck here. Because I haven't had any luck so far.

    The problem:
    Windows 10 not showing the actual Icon in small icon view-icon-issue.png

    On the left you see my file explorer Windows 10 latest update (2004/19041) [on 1903 I had the same issue] . On right you see the same folder being opened on my Server running Windows Server 2012. Note that the Win10 machine doesn't show the actual Icon itself. If I switch to medium, large, extra large view the Icons will be shown. Just not in small icons or details view.

    I have tried adjusting Thumbnail cache size, applying the registry fix for broken icon filetypes, resetting the Iconcache, turning thumbnail preview off and on, updating to a new windows build, resetting all Folder Options. Nothing helped.

    Any and all help in resolving this issue is greatly appreachiated, because it's driving me nuts. I am working on Icons and I need to see them in small size.

    Thanks.

    Here are some options. You most likely have tried them but I'll post it anyway. Just click one you haven't tried. Welcome to TenForums VentZer0

    Option One: To Turn On or Off Thumbnail Previews in File Explorer Options
    Option Two: To Turn On or Off Thumbnail Previews in Visual Effects Settings
    Option Three: To Turn On or Off Thumbnail Previews using a BAT file
    Option Four: To Enable or Disable Thumbnail Previews in Group Policy
    Option Five: To Enable or Disable Thumbnail Previews using a REG file

    Thanks, but none worked. Tried all of them.
    I think it must be something do to with the icon class itself that prevents it. Small thumbnails work for 16x16 pngs and such.
    Just .ico's don't load their content when viewed with small icon or detail view. I rather not want to reinstall windows again just to find that problem happening again.


    Did no one ever experienced this bug / glitch ever before?

    I have the same problem. I tried all the options. This problem may be caused by another application. I am not sure.

    The other day I installed "Nero AI Photo Tagger" but when it didn't work I uninstalled it (with wastes). And then this problem arose.

    My solutuion:


    • Open software and select: File Type Settings > Icon

    • Type any image extension name in the search box (like bmp, jpg, png, ico, etc.)

    • Select > Use the file's own path for the icon

    • Check this box: Infer resource path from icon preview

    • Select from the bottom "Save to Registry"


    Thats it.
