  1. Windows 10 - Show default extension icon instead of default application icon


    I edited my regedit registry to asign an extension a default custom icon. For example the .js extension.


    In HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT/.js key I added a new value called DefaultIcon pointing to the path where my icon is located. I also went to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT/JSFile/DefaultIcon and also added a (Default) value pointing to the same path.


    The problem is that .js files show the default application icon used for that type of files, SublimeText3 in this case.


    I would like to ignore the default app icon and always show the default icon I assigned manually to that extension. Is that possible?


    NOTE: I have my computer set in Spanish language.

    :)

  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.
