File icons not showing up
« on: May 05, 2009, 02:39:09 PM »
Hi all,
my icons are not showing up in FARR; even file folder icons don't show. i can't tell from a quick glance what type of file i'm running. can someone help me out? thanks

If you exit FARR completely and restart it, is the problem still there? can you show us a screenshot of it showing the problem?

mouser, i have the same problem but with folders. they only show the generic windows icons (see pic). i thought the icon size setting had something to do with it, so i used TweakUI to rebuild the icons but no change.

agreed, it's quite difficult for me to distinguish the folders from files..
