Problem: I have files that have been output by WinEdt whose icons have accidentally been changed. How can I get them back to normal?
The image with the "corrected" .synctex file icon:
Background: I recently installed a new hard drive and ended up just copying a lot of files over (it wasn't the primary hard drive but it did have WinEdt installed on it). As a result, my WinEdt application was moved over and I ended up having to select a default application to open certain files. This caused Windows to associate the wrong icon for these types of files. I'm just wondering how to undo this... In the photo above, the .tex file type has the correct symbol while the .synctex and .out files have the wrong symbol.
I managed to find another question that seemed similar, and I ended up deleting something in the Registry Editor that brought the .synctex filetype's icon back to normal, but the same process didn't work for the .out extension.
