    File status icons not updating - problem with cached files?


    Hello,I have a problem whereby the status icons for folders in File Explorer are not updating to reflect their actual status. e.g., instead of the blue-arrow-circle they should be the solid-green-checkmark. So there seems to be a disconnect between my local OneDrive files and what's considered synced online.Here's what I've tried:1. unlinking my PC from OneDrive and then reconnecting. No change.2. performing a reset: C:\Program Files\Microsoft OneDrive\onedrive.exe /reset but that did nothing.3. finding temp files within the folders, but I only found two, and deleting them hasn't fixed the

  2. Icon Caching Problem

    Folks,

    I'm having an icon caching problem that I've not been able to solve. What precipitated this event was that I was trying to get Adobe Connect to work. From what I could tell Shockwave was having an argument with Windows 10. I've tried everything suggested on this board and others for fixing icon caching with no results. Short of reinstalling Windows, I'm out of ideas. I've tried:

    1) System Restore
    2) Last good backup (the external hard drive that I was using for backups turned out to be corrupt and toast)
    3) Manually and using .bat files deleting and rebuilding icon cache files
    4) Increasing via regedit the size of icon cache
    5) Replacing iconcache.db with good one
    6) Repairing Windows by in place upgrade

    None of these measures have had any effect. Any other ideas?

    TIA,

  3. Windows 10 Picture Files not updating thumbnails

    Hi,

    I realize that the picture files are not updating thumbnails. I will try to help you with this issue.

    Suggest you to perform “Disk Cleanup”, cleaning up the temporary internet files, thumbnail, cookies and temp files, so as to check the thumbnail view of the photo is updated by cleaning up your temporary data.

    Further, if the issue persists then you can also follow these steps:


    • Right click in the Folder that contains the images.

    • Select View.

    • Note the current icon size, and change it to another size (ie: "Medium-Icons" to "Large-Icons", then back to "Medium-Icons").

    • This causes the icons to be resized and their cache updated.

    Keep us informed to help you further.

    Clear the 'cache' in file explorer for already used picture tags?


    If you set some tags for your *.jpg pictures, the windows 10 file explorer shows them in the "details pane" on the right side.

    This list can get very long and with some wrong or no longer used entries.
    How can I clear this list / cache / suggestions?

    Or how can I stop the file explorer to suggests already used Tags?
