    Normal Folders can't change to Custom .ICO files

But then I installed a Windows 11 skinpack, but then decided to uninstall it to revert my theme to windows 10.

  4. Normal Folders can't change to Custom .ICO files

    Why .ICO files blurry when you convert from an image?

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    I suggest you to follow the steps below on how to change a picture to.ico format and check if this helps. Follow the steps below to do the same:

    • Select the image\picture you want to convert into .ico.
    • Now resize the image to 32x32 using Paint or Photo Gallery.
    • Save the file and just rename it to with an .ico extension and also select 24bit bitmap.
    Hope this information was helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.
