    Somehow my folder icons in Internet Explorer favorites window (the small folder icons next to the bookmark names) got turned off and I don't know how to get them turned back on.
    This also happened with the folder, drive, cd-drive, etc. icons in Windows explorer . . . no icons just the names of the folders and drives.
    I downloaded Tweak UI and tried to repair icons to no avail.

    Any help appreciated . . . have been trying to get the icons back for a while and am getting frustrated.

    Thanks!

    God only knows what you have done to cause that :)

    try at a command prompt

    sfc /scannow - that might fix them for you

    Or go through and set every option you have to default :p

    You didn't screw up one of your .dll files did you?
