    In that case, delete your current one, download a new copy of the Transparent.ico file to your desktop, unblock it, then move it to System32 to see if that may help. In addition, double check the registry to make sure the path to the .ico file is correct.

    Problem solved!!
    The unblock-thing did the trick!

    Thank you very much helping me to solve this problem

    Hello Brink,

    Shell Icons is missing for me in the registry for some reason and I cannot carry out the changes you illustrate. Any idea why its missing and how I could proceed? I just reinstalled windows 10 and nearly all my files and folders have the blue compression arrows. Driving me insane. Thanks

    Welcome to the forum,

    Did you see this blue note box under number 3?

    If you do not have the Shell Icons key, then right click or press and hold on the Explorer key, click/tap on New, click/tap on Key, type Shell Icons for the name, and press Enter.

    Hi, I followed the steps, using the transparent.ico downloaded from here, but my icon appears as black. Any ideas on how to resolve this? I have already unblocked the file and saved it in System32 folder.

    (The ico file only appears transparent instead of black when not in small view)

    Hello krytoned,

    As a test, restart the computer to see if that may help.

    Still black icons.. I noticed my computer seem to display icons that are mostly transparent as black when they are in small view mode. I think I would rather go back to the blue arrows then stay with black squares sigh.

    As a test, do you still have the black icons when using any other different icon than the transparent.ico? Perhaps one from imageres.dll or shell32.dll as a test.
