I'm working on something cool (I'll share later if I get it sorted), but have run into a bit of a snag. I have hundreds of shortcuts all with custom thumbnails that work perfectly fine. Normal shortcuts - change icon, never any problem. Folders - change icon, also never any problem.
So here's the thing.. When you right click an open space you can choose New > Shortcut. Then you enter the shortcut location, name it and poof, a new shortcut. The difference is by using the right click method the shortcut you create is a .url file rather than a .lnk (like a normal shortcut). Okay fine no big deal, the .url shortcut works exactly as intended.
However, my issue comes when I add custom icons to the .url shortcuts. After changing a dozen or so inside a folder I realized that some of the icons had shrunk, while others had not. Icons that appeared large originally shrank to a much smaller size centered amongst the larger icons. I'd say maybe one in eight did this for no apparent reason.
I have tried everything I can think of, including deleting my usernames thumb cache. All it did was generate a new batch of malfunctioning thumbs. Some of the ones that were not working suddenly were, and others were not. It is, in fact, completely random.
Is anyone aware of a bug and/or fix to this .url thumbnail problem? Any help or info would be greatly appreciated!
