lol. I thought I was the only one that did that. Right click on your desktop> select Properties> "Appearance" tab> "Advanced" button> There's a little pull-down menu, click on that and select "icon" making the size 32.

Yeah, i know what you mean, uglier then hell. I'm trying to remember exactly what i did to get mine back. Your "show desktop" icon is flat right? Not the neat looking one that's turned to the side a little bit, giving it the 3d (sorta) affect? And all the others are bland.

Do you have a copy of Customizer XP installed?

I'm not sure now, it was a hard to locate fix when i did it, lol. Get a copy of Customizer XP. On the first page, "System," there's an option, "Change Icon Color Format" (third item down on the list). tick that box and you'll get some options along the bottom: 16 bit; 24 bit, and 32 bit. I hope that helps.

I have gotton those same ugly looking icons on my desktop b4 ( only after I used the repair icons tool in Tweak UI)

To fix them all I did was go to my dispay properties and toggle my color quality from 16 bit or 24 bit and it refreshed everything.

It might work for you too.



JUST TWEAK IT
