    missing icons and changing names of programs


    I have a few questions


    1. How do I change the name of the programs installed on my computer? I have tried CCleaner but sadly I cannot use it because it conflicts with steam
    2. Some of the icons on some of my progams are missing. How do I get them back?

    1. Make copies of the real shortcuts, rename them then hide the originals.

    2. Right click the shortcut/Properties/Change Icon/Browse to the program's .exe

    Thanks, that brought back the icons from my programs in my start menu, but it didn't work for the programs in the control panel.

    CCleaner basically did the job of changing the names, sadly I cannot use the program because it conflicts with steam games. So any other options/programs are appriciated.

    Still have a problem. I have to download ccleaner occasionally to change the names of my programs and then uninstall it again. I'd like a more convenient solution when it comes to changing the names of my programs.

    Should also mention that the icons from my programs in the control panel still disappears randomly sometimes.

    Well i got back the nvidia icon by installing the latest nvidia drivers, but from my experience, the icon will sooner or later disappear from the control panel again.

    Ccleaner has never 'changed the name' of any of the installed programs on my PC.

    To which cleaner option do you attribute what you're seeing?

    Nor has it ever affected my control panel.

    I find it hard to imagine what you see happening. Screenshot maybe?

    You can specify what is to be excluded if it is doing something you don't want:

    Please could you explain which function or setting or use of ccleaner causes your program names to change.

    Oh, i basically open ccleaner, click on tools, and then double click on the program i wish to give a proper name.

    Why?
