Can anyone tell me how this keeps happening and how to fix it. I usually have full icons for my files, but for some reason my Photoshop CS6 file icons keep getting turned into the white icons with a little "PS" logo inside. I am using Windows 7 Professional edition on a 64-Bit Desktop.
The icon shouls be a full icon similar to the following (I know this is an After Effects icon - but is just to show an example of what I meant by a full file icon).
Has anyone came across this and have a way to fix this.
It has nothing to do with that. The actual look of the icon is different on my desktop. I already have already took a look at that. See the photos, they show the file icon looking like a generic icon with the "PS" logo sitting inside. It is not supposed to look like that.
I concur with Noel, uncheck that option , or you might one day receive a file that it not what it claims to be!
But I don't know about the icon issue. I take that the AE file is on the same desktop?
Enrique has neglected to answer my direct question and tell us what the file type of the cd_cover file he has on the desktop is. He seems to believe it is a .PSD file, but do we believe it? I can't see that from any of the information he has provided.
And Enrique, you may *think* you want that full PSD icon, but what you really need is a codec so that you can see a thumbnail of your actual image in the icon. Fooling around with reading the names on a bunch of identical icons is just silly.
And lastly, it may seem like a nice feature, but I suggest avoiding the use of your Desktop for storing files. There are Windows glitches you can run afoul of - such as the desktop not actually updating to reflect recent changes, or automatic deletion of items Microsoft deems as "broken" - if you use the Desktop.
It is a PSD file, I created that file just yesterday. I fixed the icon issue by "right-clicking" the file and selecting the program to open it will - and checked "Always select this program to open this kind of file." Now it look like it should. Also, the only reason the file is on the desktop was so I would have names of other files around it like you do on your image, Noel. Just a decision to not have the other files around - may be distracting for some. Apprecciate the help and comments anyway folks!
