Terminal Server 2003 shortcut icons orphaned
Posted on 2013-01-31
We have a terminal server, got a call that a user's icons were missing their native pic, most common is all Office and Adobe Acrobat. If they double-click on the shortcut the correct program opens, but cannot figure out why lost their association.
If you navigate to a shared folder the documents for Word or Acrobat also lost their format.
I also checked file associations and all extensions, ie .docx or .pdf as set to open the correct application. Just the icons seemed to of all lost their association with the original icon...
