Windows 10: I want my icons back

    I want my icons back

    When I upgraded to Windows 10 all my icons disappeared and became light blue images of fx a camera for .bmp files.
    How do I get my icons back that show a preview of what the file looks like, please?

    You could try ccleaner, both the file cleaner and registry cleaner. You need to go through its options and disable anything that you want to keep.

    Hello Wolffie, :)

    This sounds like you may have turned off or disabled thumbnail previews. Double check using the tutorial below to make sure that you have thumbnail previews enabled and turned on.
