    Icons once they are pinned show small versions and a square


    I have an issue with Windows 10. When I first installed Windows 10 everything was fine but I have found that the icons pinned to the taskbar are the correct icon but they are very small and inside a square. In my case its a blue square. Any way to get those icons back to the way I had them? I already deleted the iconcache.db file and rebooted. It did not work. Any other suggestions. The icons work fine and I can live with it but it would be nice to have the larger ones back.

    :)

  2. ID verification

    Once I have logged in with my PIN, I am still getting a pop up saying "please re-enter your PIN so we can verify that it's really you." The popup displays a black and white set of small squares similar to the Microsoft logo. Is this a scam?

    Windows 10 phone - Pinning web pages to Start

    I've just upgraded my phone to W10. I have a lot of pinned web pages on my Start screen which I had reduced to the Small size in WP8.1. This worked fine as the tile showed a small version of the web page, enough to know which tile was which. However, after
    the W10 upgrade all the pinned pages just appear as blue squares, impossible to know which is which unless you increase the size of the tile so that it displays a name. I don't want to make these tiles larger. Is there a solution for this please? Thanks.

    Thin blue square on icons: I removed the arrow from my desktop icons, but i see there is now a thin blue square around most icons. The blue line seems useless and clutters the icon. Does anyone know how to get rid of those blue lines? And why do they appear on some icons and not on others? 21967

    Small icons, but date still showing on taskbar: I don't want the date showing on my taskbar, so I put the icon size to small so only the time would show, but it's still showing the date as well. How do I get rid of it? Obviously there's a glitch somewhere, but I don't know where to begin. 87195
