    OneDrive Icon Changed


    Hello friends!

    I have this problem:
    http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/o...0-60baf7890b47
    "Hi,I have a minor bug in OneDrive. In Windows 10, during the process of signing in to my OneDrive for the first time, I changed the default folder. The application works fine, and all files are synced. The special OneDrive entry in the root-level of File Explorer (between Quick Access and This PC) shows the familiar clouds icon; however, the icon on the actual physical folder in File Explorer shows a plain folder icon.
    Oddly, if I exit the OneDrive app, the folder suddenly gets a cloud icon. I thought I had fixed the problem, but when I rebooted, restarting the OneDrive application, the folder went back to being a plain folder icon.
    It's no big deal (maybe I just have OCD), but I'd like to fix this if possible. Having a different icon is a useful reminder that the folder is not a normal one.
    Anyone know how I can fix this?"


    Ideas?

    There are two icons. One that looks like a Cloud that is showing when you collapse all of the folders. The other is under your user profile, which looks like a Folder.

    Had the same issue today: OneDrive icon in Explorer was showing generic folder icon instead of specific OneDrive icon for this system folder...

    So I noticed desktop.ini into OneDrive folder was pointing to the wrong path:

    Code:
    C:\Users\Luca\OneDrive>type desktop.ini
    [.ShellClassInfo]
    IconResource=C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft OneDrive\OneDrive.exe,1
    ...but now OneDrive for me on Windows 10 is under "C:\Program Files\Microsoft OneDrive\OneDrive.exe", no more in "(x86)", so I edited the desktop.ini file; then Properties (RMB over OneDrive folder): Customize tab, Restore default below to restore default icon and in a few minutes Windows 10 restored the correct icon!
