    Windows 10 Image Icons All Look the Same

    Hi,

    I would like to inform you that the icons that represents image files all look the same with no way to tell jpegs from gifs, pngs, etc. So, I suggest you to enable Windows to show extensions for known
    file types. To do so, kindly do these following steps:

    • Click Start and then click File Explorer.
      Start
      can be accessed by pressing the Windows key or by clicking the
      Windows Icon on the lower-left side of your screen.
    • Click File and then click Change folder and search options.
    • Click View and then uncheck Hide extensions for known file types.
    • Click OK.

    You can now see the file extensions, enabling you to identify jpegs from gifs, pngs, etc.

    Feel free to ask us for more assistance with Windows.

  3. File Explorer "Photos" icon now missing since Creators Edition update

    I appreciate the suggestion, but sadly that doesn't fix the problem when viewing in details or list mode. I prefer using details/list modes as I mix images with other files in the same folder sometimes, and the long lists look better that way. Image only folders look great in thumbnail mode, but for mixed file folders it is not good. I realise this is not a major issue and is purely cosmetic, but something went wrong, so be good to fix if possible Odd looking file icon :)

    I got these suggestions from the Microsoft Community forum.No. 1 worked for me:

    Thank you for posting the query on Microsoft Community. I am glad to assist you on this.

    2. Select Settings and click on Choose what to clear.
    3. Check the boxes Browsing history, Cookies and saved website data and Cached data and files and click on Clear.
    Step 2:

    4. Enter a user name and hit next.
