    png icon doesn't display properly on actual desktop

    Using Win 10 Pro, Version 10.0.14393 Build 14393. I used Nirsoft's FileTypesManager to change the icon for .png files. This works for all .png files that I see in Windows Explorer (in any folder), the recycle bin, & even the Desktop folder if viewed in Windows Explorer.

    However, it doesn't show up on my actual desktop. In fact, if I open IrfanView (my preferred image editor), paste an image & save it on my desktop as a .png, this is what happens.
    1. The correct icon flashes
    2. then it changes to a different icon & a thumbs.db file is created on the desktop

    Somehow, I think that new image files are created as thumbnails, but I don't know why. I do have my pictures folder viewed as large icons, but my actual desktop is viewed as small icons.

    How can I view .png files (or other image files) just as their default icons on my desktop?
    Thank you in advance,

  2. Build 14271 - dual display - taskbar problem with auto hide on

    Just been upgraded to 14271 and now the taskbar on my laptop display is blank if I have auto hide turned on. The taskbar top edge is shown but the actual desktop is visible through the taskbar area and there are no icons displayed. The taskbar on the
    second display is populated properly. Is there a fix please?
