The Icons all changed to yellow folder icons, not sure what caused this. Any clues would be appreciated.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Tough to say why, but to fix it, I'd start by rebuilding the icon cache, as described in this article:

  1. Open Windows Explorer, and configure your Folder Options > Views to show Hidden / System Files
  2. Go to C:\Users\<User>\AppData\Local folder
  3. Delete the hidden IconCache.db file
  4. Reboot
