  • After installing VLC media player in Windows 7, 32bit beta(7229) and usins it as the default MPlayer, all the desktop icons as well as start menu icons are changed to vlc media player icon. Why?

    After setting the vlc as the default media player, it shows all the icons in task bar and start menu are changing.
    Only after Uninstalling the vlc media player and rebooting/logging off the system the microsoft default icons are displaying back.

  • Hi,

    I hope while installing with VLC any custom Theme is installing.Try with this,

    1.
    Right-click on Desktop and select "Personalize". It'll open Desktop Personalization window. Now you'll need to click on "Change desktop icons" and "Change mouse pointers" links given in left-side pane.

    2. First let's talk about "Change desktop icons" link. Click on it and it'll open "Desktop Icon Settings" window. You'll see a checkbox "Allow themes to change desktop icons" present at the bottom of the window.

    Simply uncheck this option and Apply your changes.

    3. Now come to the "Change mouse pointers" link. Click on it and it'll open "Mouse Properties" window. You'll again see a checkbox "Allow themes to change mouse pointers" at the bottom of this window.

    Uncheck this option and Apply the changes.

  • Dear Mr Anil

    I did as you said in your responce. I unchecked  "Allow applm theams to change desktop theams".
    But still the thing happens... after first reboot of the system, the desktop icons and taskbar icons are changes to vlc media player icon, except MyComputer and Recycle Bin icon.

    1. I installed VLC and changed the theam settings, its not rectified.
    and later
    2. I changed the theam setings and installed  VLC, Problem still there.


    Thanking You

  • Almost any problem can be fixed by reinstalling it :) First of download the newest version from the vlc player download page or use the update option in VLC. My player used to crash too back in the day but everything got fixed with a simple reinstall. I remember mine was crashing all the time back in the day so I reinstalled it and there were no more crashes afterwards. VLC player download page.
