Hi Andy,

Right click on the IE icon (shortcut) on your desktop and select "Properties" from the context menu.

Click the "Change Icon" button on the General tab.

It shoud be using the icon from

C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe (this may be a different path on your 'puter)

not something like

.....iexplore.exe#1234 (the number after .exe specifies an icon ordinal, not the default)

Regards.

Hi Andy,

I understand what is happening now. The icon you are referring to is for the Internet Explorer System folder (not a shortcut icon)..

I had a play around but could not see how it works and how to change the icon so I only have two suggestions.

1. Re-install IE7 (you may have to uninstall it and revert back to 6 and then run the setup program again... ) maybe delete the icon from your desktop first.

2. Delete the Desktop icon (Internet Explorer System Folder) and replace it with a normal shortcut, which you can change the icon to whatever you want.

Ar..uh.... Heres how it works...

Right click on the Task Bar and select Properties from the context menu... Start Menu tab...

Select the 'Start Menu' option (not the Classic Start Menu)... this will change your start menu to the XP version and remove the Internet Explorer from your desktop and place it in the XP Start menu.

Click the Customize button...and ensure that 'Show on Start Menu' - Internet - Internet Explorer is selected..

Save your changes.

Now in theory if you go back into the Task Bar properties and change back to the Classic Start Menu, then your Internet Explorer System folder will be moved back to the Desktop from the Start Menu... Hopefully displaying the correct icon....

I think what has happend is that at one stage you specified to use small icons on the Start Menu, and when you changed to the Classic Start Menu, your desktop settings were for large icons, so the small icon has been stretched and looks grainy.

Let us know how you get on... this is a tricky one.... I've spent some time it. Hopefully the above will do the trick.

Regards.
