Try this and keep me (us) updated: open notepad, copy the following lines of code, save the file as reset-icon.bat, right-click the new file, click run as administrator.

The system will be restarted, hence save your work and close every working program/application before you run this batch.


@echo off

taskkill /im explorer.exe /f


attrib -h -r -s "%localappdata%\iconcache.db"

del "%localappdata%\iconcache.db"

del "%localappdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer\icon*.db"

del "%localappdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer\thumb*.db"



echo The system is going to restart




shutdown /f /t 0 /r

2, Deselect Hide extensions for known file types

    Deselect Hide protected operation system files
