SOURCE: Icons on Desktop and Start Menu will not open - Acer Aspire 5000

Run a registry cleaner. It will reconnect the proper registry files with the programs. You will probably average 5-50 registry errors per week. After a while, they will slow or stop things from working.

Why does my Icons on the desktop turns default once VLC player is installed?


What do you mean turns default? Are you saying all your music icons turned into the VLC icon as the default player to play them with?

If so you can change that. Right Click on one of the music icons that has vlc as the player and select Open With then select Chose Program at the bottom. When the Open With window opens select the player you want to use as your default and look down near the bottom and put a check in the box that says Always Use The Selected Program To Open This Kind Of File.

The appearance of my icons changed, they now have a small blue square with two right arrow symbyls in the square.


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Windows XP
    Change Default Icons in Windows XP
  1. Step 1 Start Windows in your normal fashion.
  2. Step 2 Click the Start menu and select the "My Computer" option. Alternately, you can double-click the "My Computer" desktop icon if you've enabled it to appear on the desktop.
  3. Step 3 Double-click on your hard drive to open the directory.
  4. Step 4 Find the program for which you wish to change the associated icon. You'll need to know its location on the hard drive. If you don't know where it is, you can use the Start menu "Search" feature to locate it.
  5. Step 5 Right-click on the file, and click the "Properties" menu option. This will open the Properties menu for the file.
  6. Step 6 Click the "Change Icon" button. If there is no "Change Icon" button, you will need to create a desktop icon instead. To do so, cancel out of the Properties menu and right-click the file again. This time, select "Send to -> Desktop (create shortcut)."
  7. Step 7 Click on one of the icons that appears in the list. If the icon you want isn't on the list, click the "Browse" button to search for more icons.
  8. Step 8 Click "OK" once you've chosen the icon you'd like to use.
  9. Step 9 Click "Apply" to confirm your changes, and then click "OK" to close the window.
  10. Step 10 Wait a moment to see the icon change. There are times, like when a lot of system resources are in use, when icon changes can take a moment to appear.
