Hello,

Have Win7 Ultimate X64. I've changed the desktop icons for the Recycle bin both empty and full.

The icon will not refresh without pushing F5

Any Ideas on how to make it automatic?

Thanks

Delete your Thumbcache files with the Disk Cleanup Utility (Press Start, (My) Computer, Right click C: Drive (your Main or System Drive), Properties, Click on the Disk Clean Up button). Thumbnails is one of the options you can choose to clean up.


Then delete your (hidden) IconCache.db which you'll find in C:\Users\Your User Name\AppData\Local folder

Finally re-start.

That may (only may) cure it.

Hi,

Sorry for the late responce. I used two seperate animated Icons for the recycle bins two
Icons (Full/Empty)

On open desktop Right click - Properities - Personalize

Select top left "Change Desktop Icons"

This all worked fine but Icons are not animated unless I press f5

Thanks
