    @ddelo It really is the best. Knowledge is amazing, members are great, Brink's tutorials (and a .bat file or two from you and shout out to Bree and Ed) have saved me with issues and/or taught me ideas countless times in the detail that I love with multiple remedy options, clarity, and conciseness.

    UI, layout, notification systems all great. Like really, really great. Front page is clean and easy to understand as are settings some of which are really cool. I feel like I should be paying a fee for the support here. MS support reps will actually reference TenForums in replies to users. When I Google/Bing a question the best results come back here.

    I've asked questions at other forums when I was trying to find a good one that usually had no response or shaky information that didn't really address the issue. Threads about UWP apps (I don't remember just using that) would devolve into some sort of YouTube thread where it turns into arguing, politics, whatever.* No juvenile bickering here and a refreshing break from politics and social issues to focus on tech. Also, everyone made their avatars festive for Christmas which is hilarious (Foghorn Leghorn and aliens in Santa hats) and great.

    *There's a term for this that I cannot find. Longer a thread is the more likely it is to inevitably turn into a bunch of insults.

    Example in action: Just accidentally left this page. Lost my reply. Replies are auto saved. Pushed the restore button. Life is a bit easier. Saved me twice this week. Simple feature but I don't see it around much.

    Hi. I had solved the problem and I was trying to use this to try something else on another thread. I just didn't do something correctly there. The .bat file isn't to blame, it should be fine.
    That's great news. I'm glad you got it sorted.

    I know this is an old thread but I've running your batch file twice. It has worked fine for a few minutes but then it reverts back to having some files with the red X's. I saw something on another forum but I don't understand it. maybe you guys can understand since on the other forum i get no response. 0

    Your Windows Shortcut icon likely got changed.

    Try resetting the icon back to its default. In the following key, set the string value 29 to %windir%\System32\shell32.dll,-16769: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Icons.

    Logoff for the change to take effect.

    Note: While written for Windows 7 and 8, this should work in Windows 10 as well.

    If this would work, is it possible to write a batch file for it? thank you for listening

    Hello @bgbdbill67, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Please go ahead and post a screenshot showing these files with a red X just to help make sure of what they may be for.

    Could they be for a shared or network file or shortcut that is currently not available or being synced to? For example, while a drive or network is not connected to, or OneDrive file/folder not being synced.
