    Favorites icons changed to ie icons


    I have recently reinstalled Win 10 and use Internet Explorer 11 as my browser .
    After a couple of days the favourites icons all became ie icons . Have searched online for answer but none of them work for me . Can anyone hep me return my icons to the colourful web icons they used to be I would guess that it a change in registry might do it but would like a bit of help .

    How to enlarge Menu icons, namely file, edit, view, favorites, tools, & help and how to enlarge favorites in IE 11

    Please advise how to enlarge the Menu icons, namely, File, Edit, View, Favorites, Tools, & Help

    and how can I enlarge my list of favorites in IE 11. The font size for these icons and favorites is

    in tiny print. However, below my toolbar the size of the body of IE 11 is perfect to view with a zoom at 150%. Before I downloaded IE 11, the Menu icons on IE 10 and my favorites were larger and easy to read. I don't want to make any other changes to my
    computer icon sizes other than the above correction. Please help.

    Two changes to try. Either of these might change your screen enough that you can't live with it, but...

    1. Right-click the Desktop> Display settings> Resolution> try changing resolution one step such as from 1366 x 768 to 1280 x 720. This will make everything larger.

    2. Still in Display Settings> Change the size of text, apps, etc.. Custom scaling> try minor changes like 105%, 110%, etc.

    If you have them synced, or recently imported/reinstalled without visiting the actual site, the default icons will be the browser icon as you describe. The only way I found to restore the icons is to open each one, and then they will reload, and the next time you close, and reopen the browser, the icons should be back to normal.

    Thanks for reply but I have now found a way to get them back to normal . It involves Regedit as follows ;
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER> software>Microsoft>windows>currentversion>explorer>flexts . Search for .lnk and delete it .
    Restart PC and all back to normal .
