Hello,

My Desktop icons became blank or ‘white paper’ icon, where supposedly the icons should be colorful and customized in style and color.

It’s as if the icon for the shortcut has been removed or unassigned, and been replaced with default blank icon in white.

Please take a look at how these icons are appearing.

Please help!

Regards,

Thank you
Hey,

After trying most of what was recommended (system restore, registry edits, rebuilding iconcache.deb in several ways), I did not get success.

I finally got my icons back after following something else! Download the trial version of IconPackager here. Install it and use it to switch to any icon package.

Then switch back (if you want to) to the standard windows icons.

Best regards!

A few words of thanks would be greatly appreciated. Add comment

This was a great help and solved my ongoing problem of many months. It was such a relief that I bought the program (only $9.99) rather than just use the trial. I thought this the fair thing to do in the circumstances. Thanks to all
