    Change Desktop folder icon


    Brink,

    I have 2 other icons I am having trouble finding to change. Take a look at these screenshots and let me know if you have any ideas. The desktop icon in the file explorer menu did not update., not sure where that is being pull from. And in OneDrive folder my "Desktop" is synced but its showing the default icon. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Cannot change desktop icon

    Sometimes a desktop icon changes from what it was to a plain white folder. Might be something I did but not sure what.

    To change it to the icon I want, I go:
    1. Rt-click icon > Properties > Change icon
    2. I select the icon I want from the thumbnails of icons.
    3. Click OK
    4. Click Apply
    But the icon does not change. It just stays looking like a white folder.
    HOWEVER, if I pin the icon to the taskbar, the icon on the taskbar does look like the icon I selected in step-2. So the change is registered with Win10 but the icon on the desktop just doesn't change.

    Any ideas on how to fix this?
