Windows 7 Icon Problem

Recommended Posts

Well I've had paint.net for about 3 years now and its only started doing this.

For some reason whenever I save a PDN, Windows gives it a little x for a thumbnail.

I can't seem to figure out why as this worked on my other computer (running vista) with an older version of paint.net as I haven't upgraded that computer.

What I find even more strange is that when I copied all my pictures over, the ones that already had thumbnails on the Vista Laptop were fine.

This comptuer is windows 7 64-bit and lso has the most current version of paint.net on here.

Yeah I've actually noticed this too, but haven't been able to figure it out.

It seems to only happen on some people's systems, especially those who do development-related "stuff".

I had the same problem on a new Windows 7 pc. I noticed it looked like it was the oldest files that had the problem. The once that may have been saved in a previous version of Paint.NET.

So I tried opening them and re-saving them. That seems to help most of the time.

Some people seek justice so persistent, that they will do great injustice themselves.
