My newest hp all-in-one

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Product name : HP Pavilion All-in-One 27-xa0xxx

 

Since i purchased this (overpriced) model, i have been very disappointed on a number of levels. My immediately grip is that when i place icons or apps on my desktop, they all look the same, all generic. 

My previous hp all-in-one did not have this problem.  When i placed my bank icon, airline icon, or whatever icon on my pc,  it showed, almost without exception, that entity's unique logo. Why is this no longer happening? Is there a way to fix this?

 

Thanks for any feedback.

Welcome to HP Community

 

I have gone through your Post and would like to help

 

Please try these steps


1 Open a Command Prompt. Click Start > Type CMD > Right click on it and run as Administrator

2. Copy and paste each command below one at a time into the command prompt, and press Enter after each command.


ie4uinit.exe -show

taskkill /IM explorer.exe /F

DEL /A /Q "%localappdata%\IconCache.db"

DEL /A /F /Q "%localappdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer\iconcache*"


shutdown /r /f /t 00

 

The computer will restart. Let me know how it goes

Hello Krazytoad. Thanks for your reply. Sorry but | am not the most tech savvy. I don't know what you mean by opening a command prompt. Not sure how/where to follow your steps. Can you elaborate?

 

Thank You

Hello KrazyToad,

 

I did as you instructed and I tried to reset an icon and it did not work. On my old HP model, if i wanted to place an icon on my desktop, i would simply go to the website and right clic. A menu would appear and i would clic 'creat shortcut'  The icon, in most cases would show that entities logo.  But that was with internet explorer. Now that i do not use internet explorer any more, I have not been able to set up my icons as before. Very disappointing. Any further suggestions?
