Here is a cropped example of my desktop:
The top two icons, "Pritzlaff 35 and "Videography Contract" open with the same program, Adobe Acrobat Pro. One produces a thumbnail, the other does not.
The next row, "Pritzlaff", again is a .pdf and should have a thumbnail, or at least the Acrobat logo.
Next to that is "Wedding Planner." That is an access database. It should have the Access logo but does not.
It is not just on the desktop, the application's icons are gone in the start menu too.
Then the next two applications have icons, and they are correct. I don't really see a pattern to which programs are affected. I see Citrix, Adobe Acrobat, all of the Office Suite, Quicktime, and some internal OS programs too. Just to name a few.
- Other profiles on the computer suffer from the same issue
- I tried deleting the IconCache.db and rebooting but it did not resolve the issue.
- All file associations are correct and applications are fully functional. It's just an annoyance and I am finally doing something about it.
- Also tried making a new account on my computer so it created a new profile, that didn't work, the same icons were missing.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!! - Thanks
