Corrupted notepad icon?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I just noticed today that the folder icon for notepad looks like this:




I updated my gpu drivers, restarted my pc, ran chkdsk /f, and sfc scannow, but it's still like this. Is this something to worry about, or is it just a nuisance?

I can't help you buy something if you don't list a budget or intended use.

I can't help you troubleshoot if you don't list your specs/config.

P.S. Pictures usually help.

I happen to say this error on Superuser.

"It appears to be a bug in the thumbnail code for Windows. I've used IconExtract to review the icons in notepad.exe and don't see any problem within them.

enter image description here

The code that renders the thumbnail inside the folder image appears to have a bug.

I'm not sure what other answers to provide."
