    Windows 10 not showing the actual Icon in small icon view


    Hi there,

    after looking for hours on Google to resolve my Issue, I decided to try my luck here. Because I haven't had any luck so far.

    The problem:

    Windows 10 not showing the actual Icon in small icon view [​IMG]


    On the left you see my file explorer Windows 10 latest update (2004/19041) [on 1903 I had the same issue] . On right you see the same folder being opened on my Server running Windows Server 2012. Note that the Win10 machine doesn't show the actual Icon itself. If I switch to medium, large, extra large view the Icons will be shown. Just not in small icons or details view.

    I have tried adjusting Thumbnail cache size, applying the registry fix for broken icon filetypes, resetting the Iconcache, turning thumbnail preview off and on, updating to a new windows build, resetting all Folder Options. Nothing helped.

    Any and all help in resolving this issue is greatly appreachiated, because it's driving me nuts. I am working on Icons and I need to see them in small size.

    Thanks.

    :)

    Windows 10 desktop icons not in order

    In ccleaner, did you uncheck cleaning the icon cache... have not used in a while; however, I think that is what the option is called.

    Now, if you are setting the icons and they move after you have set the settings and not changed them... you may have the "Random Windows 10 Icon movement problem".
    Some people have this and some don't.

    Here is a thread on the problem at Windows10 forums: Windows 10: Folder View Settings and Desktop Icon Positions Not Saving

  3. Remove Linux Desktop Icons

    I am not sure whether this will work (Ubuntu does not have icons like that on the desktop by default), but I suggest opening the trash bin and sweeping the icons into the window showing the trash bin.

    Windows 10 not showing the actual Icon in small icon view

    Icon View Issue

    Hello all,

    I have 2 computers and both have windows 10 installed.
    But the icons on the new computer look very strange.
    Because when I select icon views as "list view", "detailed view" and "small icons",
    I encounter small versions of large icons.
    Small appearances in the icons are not detected.
    Actually i don't know how to tell. Just look at the screenshots I took on two computers.

    How is the solution to this problem?
