    Attachment 239359
    These are two PDF files that live on my desktop. It happens that I use Tracker PDF Viewer as the default and I reinstalled it yesterday. Up until that time the icons were standard graphics but now, suddenly, they depict the actual contents of the PDF. I really don't think this is Tracker's doing as they have not touched this program for years. So I blame Windows 10 1903 18362.207 and suspect that this is the doing of Microsoft Edge. How can I get my icons back?

    :)
