    missing icons and changing names of programs


    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 the icons are still missing from the control panel and the names are still a mess.

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