I tried going through "folder options" - "file types." For the url (internet shortcut) extension the generic icon remains no matter what I change it to through "advanced" - "change icon."
For example, if I want to use the icon in "C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\url.dll" in the preview it will look like IE7 (blue e with yellow circle, has a red astrisk by it). I click ok, but the "edit file type" window then displays the IE6 (all blue) icon, and clicking ok again returns to the "file types" tab where the generic icon is still standing.
Also in the file types tab, if I click on "change" (for which program will open the .url extension), it will have under "Recommended programs" the IE7 homepage icon, but under "Other Programs" it will say Internet Explorer again, but with the IE6 icon.
If anyone knows what's going on with the icon or how to fix it, any info would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
