  • If you can't understand it, let me explain it with a picture. What is that? Is it temporary? I don't think so.

  • Hi Try to Reset icon cache if that does not help, we can try to Repair it

    To Reset Icon cache follow the below mentioned steps –

    1. Right click on empty area of the desktop and click on Personalize.

    2. Click on the Display Properties link.

    3. Under Colors, select Medium (16-bit) and click on Apply. (See screenshot below)
    NOTE: If you already have Medium (16-bit) selected, then select Highest (32-bit) instead. Sometimes you will need to do a restart first, then proceed to step 4. Try both ways.

        A) Click yes to confirm the new settings.

    4. Now, select Highest (32-bit) and click on OK.
    NOTE: If you already have Highest (32-bit) selected, then select Medium (16-bit) instead.
