TaskBar Icons Constantly Changing My Icons For Chrome any Help?

Q: TaskBar Icons Constantly Changing My Icons For Chrome any Help?

I created a few shortcuts from chrome and added them to my Taskbar for ease of use.

I created one for each of my multiple Gmail accounts etc and I changed their icons to something so I can identify which was which. The shortcut's took the icon and worked fine for a short period than I noticed every time I click on the icon after changing the default icon to my new one It would change the icon back to Gmails default one.

Is there a way to prevent this from happening? Hope I explained it properly.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: TaskBar Icons Constantly Changing My Icons For Chrome any Help?

I noticed the same problem. I think the solution is to make the shortcut read only before you pin it to the task bar. I did this a few days ago and they seem to be keeping my new icon.
If you later want to unpin the shortcut from the taskbar you will need to remove the readonly check from the taskbar shortcut properties. Although it will unpin without doing this you will be left with the shortcut in the real folder and have to go there to physically delete it.

Vista newb here, soon to be a 7 newb - hope this issue doesnt transfer.


I have a folder for all of my music and then subfolders for each type (country, random, etc).

When I go into one of the subfolders, my music is always listed in details.

I dont want it to, so I change it to view small icons.


If I then close the folder for several hours or even shut down/reboot, it goes back to the details.


I have since figured out how to change this by customizing the main folder, but it is now showing them in LARGE icons, which is just as annoying and keeps changing them back to large ones even after I switch it to small ones.


Can some one please tell me how to change this and make it STAY that way??

Hello ACWN, and welcome to Vista Forums.

You might see if resetting all folder view settings may allow the changes you make to be remembered afterwards.

Hi all
(I'm italian, excuse me for my bad english).
I have a pc with windows 7 home premium 64 bit. I have a problem with some icons on taskbar: sometimes some applications are displaying the wrong icons, sometimes, as you can see (screenshot), I don't see some icons: sometimes a few are missing (this time I have 8 icons of about 20!).

If I restart my pc, some icons return, but many still missing or are wrong!


So I launched this tool from microsof (I think it rebuilt icon cache, but I'm not sure): In Windows le icone vengono modificate in modo non corretto
but it doesnt' fix the problem, see this screenshot after using this tool from microsoft:

now as you can see some applications are displaying the wrong icons and 2 icons are still missing ...is there any fix for this problem? thanks!!

Vittorio.

Hello! I am currently having some difficulties making some adjustments to make my Windows 8 computer look better. I don't like the default taskbar icons, so I have changed a few of them like so: http://i48.tinypic.com/2qjm3cw.png

Now, when I open iTunes (the music notes icon), this happens: http://i49.tinypic.com/1g3z8k.png

You would need to change the icon associated with the program itself, not the shortcut pinned to the taskbar.

Browse to the location of the .exe file for the program then right click for properties and change the Icon same as you did for the shortcut.

Currently my taskbar's font is uniform with the rest of my theme, however, I'd like to change it to a dark grey so that it doesn't stand out as much.

example
what i currently have

Any idea on how to do so? Also there is a way of renaming the tabs on the taskbar that'd be sweet as well.

I'd also like to make the icon transparent which appears to be harder than just changing the application icon to a transparent one because the icon still shows up for apps like winterfox.

Thanks.

I wanted to ask whether anyone knew how to change the icons for programs pinned to the taskbar in windows 8.1.
For example changing the icon for VLC from it's usual traffic cone to some symbol of the user's own choosing.
Or changing the size of some of the icons, so things you want to use more often have larger icons and things you use less often have smaller icons.
Or perhaps editing an icon for a program on their so that the icon becomes the usual icon for the program but with a dark or bright coloured line around it, or a load of small inward pointing arrows.
Or switching one from colour to greyscale.
Is this possible to do? How?
All I could find from google searches were things about how to add and remove icons, or change the look of the taskbar as a whole.
Thank You

Hi songsinh1241 I'm pretty sure it's possible. The icons you pinned to your taskbar are located in the following folder:C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBarFrom there, right-click on any icon and select Properties. Click on the Change icon... buttom and select a new one, then apply the changes. Once done, the icon for the program in the taskbar should change.

I started having profile errors with Chrome on Sunday. I uninstalled and reinstalled Chrome but that didn't solve the problem. I managed to get rid of it by deleting the user and creating a new user. Then Chrome started launching a second icon from the taskbar. I've unpinned it/repinned it, pinned it to the taskbar from the Start menu and it still keeps doing it.

Any help would be appreciated,

A:Windows 7 taskbar creating double Google Chrome icons

I don't know if it will solve this problem, but generally I've found installed chrome has issues. What I did is unpack a chromium snapshot under a user folder. I use C:\Utils for small utilities that don't need to be installed. Not being under Program Files the Windows system doesn't mess with the folder. But that's an aside. If you get the chrome-win32.zip file instead of installer, then unzip it to a new folder while the old chrome is still installed on your system, it should automatically pick up your bookmarks and settings.

Once you have it running correctly, remove the installed chrome.

If you try any of the chromium snap shots, the bleeding edge new versions, it's a good idea to back up your AppData\Local\Chromium folder as well as the folder that has the exe(the one you unzipped into.) That way if you get a bug you can just copy the saved folder contents back over. I keep a save folder for each chromium major version number I try such as 21.x 22.x etc..

It sounds complicated but I've been running chromium from snap shot zip files for over a year. It's just as stable as the production version unless you encounter a big bug. I keep the zip files with the version and build embedded in the name. If I have to go back to a known working version and my backup folders got hosed I can just unzip.

If you have LastPass and use bookmark sync the only thing you might lose is extention updates(but even those should be good if your back up folder scheme is kept current.)

I'm using 21.0.1156.0 chromium snap shot now. I've been running it since the end of May 2012. It's nice and solid.

edit: you don't have to use a snap shot. You can get chrome-win32.zip download from major sites like Softpedia. But if you want to try the newest you can get snap shots here:

A:Windows 7 Taskbar Creates Separate Chrome Icons Other Than Pinned Icon

Welcome to Seven Forums juiceimus. The fact you don't have it synced makes it difficult, as that is a fix. I have 2 ideas for you:

Right click the Chrome shortcut> Properties> Compatibility Tab> Change compatibility to Vista

See if that works (you could try other compatibility choices as well. This would be a workaround as the fix is something you can't do

Also, you might try unpinning the icon, Open Chrome from the start menu by right clicking the Chrome icon and choosing Run as administrator. Now pin that instance of Chrome to the taskbar, and see of that helps.

Gosh, this Windows 7 is annoying.
 
In XP if I needed to open something, say Chrome or Irfan, I could just hit the icon on the taskbar and there it opened.  If I needed another occurance, the icon was still there and I can hit it all I want for as many open occurences as I want.
 
In my Windows 7, if I hit a taskbar, the first occurence consumes the icon and it is gone.  As far as I know, I have to go back to the desktop or the programs list to open another Irfan.
 
Please tell me I'm wrong, and tell me how to make the icons be icons and the open programs be something else on the Taskbar.
 
Thank you kindly.

This references showing Toolbar rows Icons Taskbar 3 2-line Taskbar Large small using Quick Launch Bar icons don't wrap even though there is room - a post by chillz which discovers a quot bug quot with the taskbar not resetting the row-sizing for toolbars when dragging the taskbar to the left then back to the bottom I for a while now have been using a custom quick-launch toolbar on my taskbar with the taskbar being unit-lines in height and having the taskbar on my secondary left monitor When I first set this up it showed lines of small icons in the toolbar and up to lines on the standard taskbar This was perfect because the toolbar didn't reset the order every time I launched an application contrary to how the pinned application system works With pinned applications no matter what position I drop the icon the order always resets and floats from place to place so that system of organizing icons is disgusting because you have apps between icons of apps that aren't running some times and other times the running applications are above and Taskbar Toolbar showing 3 small rows using Large Icons 2-line Taskbar below with or without grouping enabled The vertical display would be the ideal way for me to view unlaunched applications see aforementioned topic because they group together and launched apps come after in horizontal mode the taskbar is chaotic without a toolbar organizing the apps to one side but then you lose the functionality of the pinned-application system if you forfeit usage of that chaotic horizontal system in favor of how the vertical system works but in horizontal mode To the point After an update restart the toolbar reset and only showed lines despite there being more than enough room for rows of small icons I couldn't figure out what happened or what changed and then I read the aforementioned topic after some searching to find it actually worked Moving the taskbar to the left then back down resets the order so lines can be used on a line-unit height taskbar with large icons I would like to see several things fixed - Fix the chaotic organizing system of the horizontal taskbar to match the vertical display mode so pinned-apps are always on one side and use all lines while opened apps read like a book Other people will likely have a different opinion to this suggestion and I'd like to read them - Fix the toolbar icon organizational system so all space can be utilized without needing to move the taskbar each restart or update I have yet to restart since fixing the issue and I rarely restart as it is but others may not keep their pc running stressful on components to keep restarting Again I'd like to read others opinions on this but I'm sure most will agree on this point that unused space shouldn't be wasted Here we see all rows in my quick-launch toolbar Unfortunately without restarting or receiving a new update I can't reset the toolbar back to lines which is fantastic and I didn't take a screenshot prior to moving the taskbar to the left then back down but for simple effect imagine the top lines visibly the bottom invisible and an arrow on the right for extra icons and that is the default view You'll likely be able to repeat the effect if you don't have a toolbar and try it out

My problem is specific to the unpinned icons in Windows 7 Home Edition 64-bit. The pinned applications stay put just fine. This problem started a couple of days ago.

It seems that, when I have multiple unpinned applications open, sometimes the icons of the unpinned applications move around at random times (it seems that the last active unpinned application moves to the right even though it wasn't the program opened last). And sometimes, when I have only one unpinned application on the taskbar, its icon seems to move from some slot to its right back in its position.

For some reason I suspect some malware or virus may be the cause.

I tried uninstalling ATI Radeon HD6450 drivers and reverting to an older version, as well as uninstalling every program that was installed since the day the problem started, to no avail. I found four malware in the meantime but even removing said malware did not solve my problem.

A:Unpinned taskbar icons moving around the taskbar

I don't think it's malware. If it's any consolation, my machine at work does this occasionally, and it's clean. I don't know what's causing it, but I've just chalked it up to being a quirk in Windows.

It looks like this topic has been, sort of, covered in this forum. But forums being what they are, I'm only finding half info.

My query is that, I have WinXP I. used TweakUI 1.33 to customize it. I hit the "rebuild icon" button that is located in "repair", which is located at the bottom of the list of features in TweakUI 1.33. Now, my XP icons look like the icons from Win2K. I DO NOT LIKE THIS!!! I want my XP garbage can back!!! Has anyone else experienced this problem and fixed it? If so, how did you fix it? Please be clear and succinct for the benefit of others who will be looking for info on this same problem. Thank you.

P.S.

Only in the last I'd say two or three days (and I've had this computer for 2+ years), whenever I open a window (any window, e.g. My Computer, My Documents, sometimes even Firefox, etc) and then close it, Windows will momentarily re-paint or refresh my desktop icons even though the icons were already painted correctly. In other words, when I close the window, I'll see my icons go from "normal" to momentarily white, then back to normal.

I'm currently using Vista SP2. I've read about this problem in Windows XP and the solution is to resize the icon cache, but not much information exists in regard to this problem being in Vista. Nonetheless, I tried rebuilding the icon cache by deleting and re-creating IconCache.db, but it didn't work.

Any ideas on why this just started happening and how to fix it? Thanks!

Is there anyway to change this to let me change the icon?

These are special shortcuts created by the installer. They are called Advertised shortcuts.

It is easier to just create a new shortcut. In Windows Explorer, navigate to the exe file, right click it, and choose 'Send To', Desktop(create shortcut). Then you can rename it and change the icon. See before and after attachments.

After have an icon saved, you go to properties and then change icon. From there you go to browse and simply find the file.

Yeah but it is involved and in most cases creates more trouble than it is worth.

The image of the icon can be replaced with the image of another icon BUT, every program on your computer (tons of them) will still have the target address of the original image and then you may get no icon at all because it is looking for an image that is not there and in somes cases really fouls things up.

I would leave it alone if it were my decision.

Hi,

I see two icons in the taskbar for every window open.
If I close one of those icons, the window goes away.
Is there a way I can get rid of this extra icon (it is
taking up space on taskbar)?

Is this a due to some malware, or just some
inadvertent mouseclicks by someone?

I have:Windows XP

Hi all

Have just installed Win XP on my friend's Compaq Armada 110 laptop. When booting up I get an error message saying UXTheme.dll could not be found - application could not start. Then the desktop comes up with no icons or taskbar.

I've acquired the dll file on floppy and want to know how to get to a command prompt so I can transfer it over but I don't know how do.

Suggestions?

A:No icons or taskbar

Try booting to the XP CD and doing a repair of the install.

It will get to a point where it will ask you to type R to do a repair.

You will need to read the instructions here

I know that the Quick Launch toolbar is no more in Windows 7, but you can pin icons to it instead. This works for me, but I have a question on how to change some behavor of the taskbar. When you click on the icon,. it becomes a bar as the item opens. To open another instance, you have to right click on it and then open it again. How can I set it up so that it doesn't do that. I know it can be done, as from my screenshot here you can see that the red SW icon opens a bar that is seperate from the icon. I want to be able to do this with Windows Explorer, as I'm opening multiple windows all the time. Does anyone know how to do this? Do you understand what I want?

A:Icons in Taskbar

Hi -

The SW icon should not be showing up twice. Multiple instances of the same app pinned to Taskbar should all appear over the original Taskbar icon.

Here is screenshot of 4 IE screens open; 3 of which were opened via RIGHT-click on Taskbar icon -



Instead of dragging to Taskbar, try this -

RIGHT-click the SW EXE file, either in the Start Menu or in Program Files folder, select "Pin to Taskbar".



If it is the opposite that you seek (like the two SF icons), try dragging Windows Explorer icon to the Takbar.

Regards. . .

John

HP Envy desktop came with Windows 10 Home already loaded. Set it up with my program shorcut icons in the taskbar. Everything working just fine for days, and then all of a sudden (well maybe not as I had just installed updates from MS) the taskbar no longer shows those icons and the Windows Start/Search/taskview icons on the left and the HP Support/Notification icons on the right show but all are inactive. Looked t some of the responses on this forum, but didn't try any of them (except starting explorer which made no difference) as they may not be pertinent to my problem. Help certainly appreciated.

A:Icons used to be on taskbar?

There can be a few possible solutions.
Let's start with a more "standard, traditional" solution............
Do a system restore. Pick a date when you did NOT have this problem as your restore point.
System Restore Windows 10

If that works, case close.
If not, we'll try next possible solution.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit...

Two applications pinned to the taskbar, Defraggler and Eusing Free Registry Cleaner, both show the "generic" icon rather than the ones built into the .exe files. In the "Start Menu", Defraggler is shown with the generic icon, but Eusing Free is shown with it's own icon.

When I put my mouse pointer over the task bar icons I get a square box with the name of what it is. I would like them to show me the picture of what the icon info is. So when I run my mouse over Excel instead of showing me just the name in a square box I would like to see the preview picture of my spreadsheet. I don't know how it got this way but I would like to know how to bring it back. I notice that the Properties "Use Aero Peek to preview the desktop" is gray out so I wonder if something happened to my video card? Also my taskbar color has changed to a grayish type of color.

A:Taskbar icons

What mode are you running? Basic mode will only show the name. To get the Picture of the application you need to be running Aero, and have Aero Peek checked in Properties. Hope this helps.

Hi! I 've got an issue with icons on the taskbar.
I like to have all my program icons on the taskbar so they are all easily accessable.
I have no issue with microsoft programs but some other programs will open up a separate icon on the taskbar even though the program is permanently pinned to the taskbar. If I click on the 'pinned' icon on the taskbar, another icon opens up at the end of the taskbar... how do I stop this from happening? Have I pinned the program to the taskbar incorrectly?

Hi, I have a laptop running XP with SP2. Had a serious problem with viruses/malware. Loaded McAfee Virusscan onto the laptop, ran it, cleaned up all except 1 virus (sorry never wrote the name down). I was told to reboot system and McAfee would complete the clean up process. When I did the reboot, I get to my background screen, but nothing else happens. No Icons....No Windows TaskBar at the bottom of the screen. I can run programs using the CTL-ALT-DELETE Task Manager.

I recently installed the trial version of PowerDVD 7 (and uninstalled PowerDVD 2.55, because otherwise the installation wouldn't continue) in order to test it out. A few minutes later, I decided to reinstall version 2.55, except I didn't uninstall version 7 before-hand.

Afterwards, I restarted my computer and logged in. I found that all my icons and my taskbar had gone. Explorer.exe was running, but it didn't seem to do anything, and starting another instance didn't do anything either. I figured it had something to do with PowerDVD 7, since that was the only thing I downloaded in a long time, so I uninstalled it.

After restarting the computer again, the icons and taskbar were still gone. I found out that I could get them to reappear if I closed the only instance of Explorer, and run it again, but I don't want to do that every time. How do I return things to the way they were?

Hi

Is there a way of placing the icons the way we used to do in win xp. I mean, i used to place icons in groups in a folder so that it was much easier and faster to select them without having to go to Start>All programs.

I work as a designer, mainly 3d models and i use many softwares. Quite often i have to work with three or four and sometimes 6 softwares at the same time. This way i have to keep them at sight in order not to go crazy.

My problem is that i?ve changed my OS recently and i?ve had a hard time trying to find things out, but i wasn?t able to config the taskbar the way i want it.

Can you give me a helping hand?

Hello everyone,
I was arranging my icons on my taskbar and deleted them. I thought no big problem, I'll just drag them back from my desktop. I have the taskbar unlocked, and when I click on the handle to drag it to the right to make room for the icons it doesn't move. In the taskbar start menu, the quick launch doesn't stay checked. When I right click on the taskbar>tools> quick launch, I can't check the quick launch. I'm not having any issues. I did a system restore to no avail. That seldom works for anyone, but it seems we always do it. Obviously, I must have done something wrong, because when I deleted them, I deleted them all at once. Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

ps. The icons I want are in the quick launch file.

Now after reformat for some reason when i open an app or anything through the taskbar the app stays larger in the taskbar and not the little icon size that it is normally (or used to be before reformat). I used to be able to open multiple windows explorer windows from literally just hitting the win explorer icon but now once something is opened it gets larger in the taskbar - similar to how when a program is open in say xp and i cant open another instance of it without opening it elsewhere or right clicking. .

I seem to be limited to how many icons I can add to the Taskbar. Unlike XP where I had many icons in the Quick Launch bar, Win 7's Taskbar limits me to about 14 icons. If I use the right click menu and choose "Pin to Taskbar" the icon is not displayed although the right click menu now displays "Unpin from Taskbar".

Dragging short cuts to the Taskbar is refused. Yes the Taskbar is unlocked and expanding the Taskbar does not allow more icons to be displayed.

I've tried several searches but have not found a solution.

A:Can't add more icons to Taskbar

Right-click on the taskbar and click on Properties. Then choose "Combine when taskbar is full".

OS: Win XP Professional

When I start up my computer, it is supposed to load 15 taskbar icons, but I usually only get 4. If I log out and log back in it will load all of them. I don't know what's going on, except that my computer might be booting up too fast to load them all (I have done tweaking, naturally ). I don't know if this would require a HijackThis post so I decided to check here first.

A:Taskbar Icons

Your tweaking isn't working to good if you got 15 programs loading at startup.
Excuse the pun, I couldn't resist..

It could be things are loading to fast, but I doubt it. I would come closer to thinking they are interrupting each other during the boot process.
I suggest stopping some of them from loading at startup and start them manually after startup.

Alright, when I started up my computer, my system32 folder popped up. I didn't mind that, but I saw this program "Accessibility Wizard" and I decided to open it.

http://www.imagestation.com/mypictu...9be4.jpg.orig.jpg&caption=blind&id=4198734820

Directly after making that image (a funny one that is) the taskbar changed.

The whole thing is a lot bigger (and pixalated), there is a small line that continues below the START button, and the date has turned into "7:30 PM" and right under it, it says "Thursday".

Anyone know how to fix this?

A:TaskBar icons TOO BIG

See if the MS article about that problem with the system32 folder opening applies to you.

It would seem that something has corrupted your registry and perhaps rather than try any individual fix, such as the link I posted, you should instead try the System Restore to see if you have a date available the pre-dates your problem. Using that method might give a more complete fix since we don't know the full extent of the corruption now.

As for the Accessability Wizard issue, you may just be able to fix that in Control Panel under the Accessibility icon. It sounds like you selected something for a person with a sight problem so you should be able to reverse that easily.

Regards.

Hello.I have windows 7 4gb Ram 500gb hdd.Regarding programs running from the taskbar icons,What I'm thinking about would it be okay to have a word document,Photoshop,Windows Media player,Snipping tool,Thunderbird email,& maybe a spreadsheet all open the same time but closed down to the taskbar.
Would it be okay to have all those running in the backround then if I require a word document just click on the icon in taskbar and hey presto away we go ans so on?
Hope that I have explained myself okay?
Many thanks.

A:Taskbar icons

presumably you mean have the programs open but minimized, that would be ok,
if you mean have them running all the time each time you start the computer until you decide you want to use them, that would make little sense.
