    Okay, just a disclaimer: Although I consider myself fairly noobish, I'll understand WHAT to do when it's explained to me, there are just certain things I'm not sure HOW to do. But with that said, here's my predicament: I like to make custom icon for my various folders. I'll create an image in Photoshop, save it as as a .gif file, and then convert it to an .ico file after that. I have created a specific folder where I keep my custom icons, so that when I want to want to change the icon on a folder, I naturally right click and then go to Properties --> Customize --> Change Icon --> Browse, and then I just locate the folder where my custom icons are stored, and select the one I want. But here's my problem: Just to use an example, let's say I create an icon titled "Example.ico" which I assign to a folder. But then I change my mind about how I want this icon to look, so I redesign it. I delete the first icon file (permanently, using Shift+Del). Just to make sure that it's gone, I hit "refresh," and the folder to which this icon was assigned is now a standard, "blank" folder. After I have made a new custom icon, I also call this "Example.ico", but when I try to assign this NEW icon to the same folder, the OLD design shows up. I know that if I call the .ico file a different name, or I store it elsewhere, the new design will show up. But I have my reasons as to why I prefer that certain icons have specific names, and are stored in a specific folder. I understand enough to guess that this happens because when I first assigned the original "Example.ico" to a specific folder, Windows made some kind of backup "memory" of that connection, including the visuals. So what I want to know is, would anyone be able and willing to explain to me how to erase that "memory" - to reset the folder, so to speak - so that the NEW version of "Example.ico" appears when I assign it to the same folder? Thanks in advance.

    Never mind, I found an article elsewhere that helped. For those who are wondering, it was this one: http://www.thewindowsclub.com/rebuild-icon-clear-thumbnail-cache-windows-10

    Hi, Since upgrading to Win10 64 my CD/DVD drive will recognize music discs, but not program discs. With a program CD in the drive, the drive doesn't even start. If I search in the drive tool bar for Program, nothing shows up. However, I can plug an external CD/DVD drive into a USB port and the program will be recognized and run. I've looked in the registry and there are no upper or lower limits for the drive. I've also ensured the Area is correct in the device manager; also the device manager indicates the drive is working correctly. I've reinstalled the driver. Suggestions? Thanks

    Instead of that, you could simply download the ISO and do a clean install. To be honest, Microsoft is themselves not sure what they want to do. I had a horrible experience with windows 10 v1709 and reverted back to 1703.

    Hi, Please try the following steps: On the keyboard press Windows Key + R. In the run box type: Regedit and click on ok. Click on allow if prompted and the registry editor will open up. On the left pane expand: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318} So essentially, you will double click on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, once its expanded, double click on SYSTEM and so on and so forth till you reach {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}. Once you have highlighted {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}, on the right pane: Delete UpperFilters, LowerFilters and NoInstallClass. Once deleted, close the registry editor and restart the computer. NOTE: It would be highly recommended to create a restore point before making any changes in the registry editor. Once the computer is restarted, please try. If issue persists, try uninstalling any 3rd party dvd burning software you may have installed. Check if issue is resolved. If issue persists, open device manager (type device manager in search on bottom left). Expand DVD/CD drive. Right click on the device and uninstall the driver. Restart the computer and issue would be fixed. If not, please let me know. Regards, Edwin S |Tech Support Team https://www.cloudappsportal.com/

    I fixed the problem, which involved selecting a DVD region under Device Management.
