Hello,

 

I have a windows 7 machine running 64bit that i'm having this ongoing issue. When i go to my computer to check on drives or a folder i don't get the drive icons i get paper icons and they never populate. The 'resolution' is to reboot but it just does the same thing again. I posted a pic so you can see what i'm talking about.

 

Mod Edit:  No picture, just blank lines which I deleted - Hamluis.

Hi DreadTech,

 

Try the first method in the instructions here--method two I don't think will apply to your case.  Icons are not displayed for certain files in Windows 7

 

Or is this the same computer you've decided to scrap for a new one?


The thing about people

is they change

when they walk away.--Mipso

Hi DreadTech,
You have selected Not the *Drive Icons*,  as you thought .. What you selected was actually Libraries.

Click on the item below what you selected and that is your Computer.
You should then see the Drives that you are looking for.

Or I normally just turn on the machine, Go > Start Icon > Computer is on the Right side list > and click for the details there.

 

I hope these ideas are what you want !! :)

You posted an image of what it looks like when it doesn't work and it sounds like it works sometimes (?) after a reboot so if that is the case why don't you post an image of what it looks like when it works.

 

Using your example of the Libraries perhaps you would like it to display something like this:

@ DreadTech

 

That looks like you found your Drives... 2 are listed. Was that all you needed ??
The item Under Libraries in your list is Computer and should show your drives (usually C: Hard drive and D: or E: CD / DVD player)
Other drives will be shown if installed : Example, while I am sitting here charging my phone, it is called another drive..

Currently Drive G is my phone.
