Fonts folder isn't compatible with Extra Large Icons.

Submitted by nyp on April 6, 2009 to Icons

The Fonts folder in the Windows folder isn't compatible with Extra Large Icons. Weird thing is that there IS one in main.cpl

Change it to the one inside main.cpl
It should be an easy resource swap.

In build 7022, the following icons in the start menu don't seem to have 256x256 versions:
Run
Connect to a projector
Windows Media Player (funny thing is, I could've sworn it had a large icon in build 7000)

Add hi-res versions.

Submitted by nyp on April 9, 2009 to Aesthetics, Icons

There is a horribly stretched icon in the keyboard layout preview window. I also suspect that this is where all the outdated icons in the Language Bar live at.

Took some digging to find - here's how to get there:
Regional and (more...)

A nicely rendered icon, please.

<build 7000> Uncustomisable Quick Access Toolbar in Paint and Wordpad (and orange-dotted icons)

Submitted by billerr on January 9, 2009 to Annoyance, Bug, Icons

1. The Quick Access Toolbar in Paint and Wordpad (the one residing in the title bar, has no options to reorder the icons in it. It just places them in the order in which you activate them.

For example if you have "Save", "Undo" (more...)

1. Add an option for custom-ordering the icons in the dropdown menu of the Quick Access Toolbar, as is the case with the Office 2007 programs. Anyway, replicating the Office Ribbon functionality (than just the looks) would offer more consistency.

Photo Viewer's E-mail button opens up a window with a horrible looking icon

Submitted by nyp on April 16, 2009 to Aesthetics, Icons

Open an image file in Photo Viewer and then click the "E-mail" button. A horrible looking icon appears on the taskbar.
Also, I wonder who actually minimizes this window...
It also doesn't seem to have the new progress bar (more...)

Put an icon in the taskbar.
Disable the ability to minimize it.
Put a progress bar on the taskbar.

Turning off the Secure Desktop for UAC results in having a generic icon on the superbar

Submitted by nyp on June 3, 2009 to Icons

If you change the UAC level to the second last level, opening a program from the Start menu will make a User Account Control prompt will display a generic icon on the superbar. Not exactly a professional feeling.

Put the UAC icon there.
