Version 1.4.1.895 (x64); custom icon in context menu not changed

Postby marc » Tue Feb 13, 2018 3:41 am

In Everything Version 1.4.1.895 (x64) and when using a custom icon, the context menu's icon is not changed (easily changed by editing the registry).

(amazing program David!)

A program itself doesn't have an icon setting. It's the shortcut that does.
You can have multiple shortcuts, each with their own icon, to a program (in this case Everything.exe)
It's impossible to know for sure which icon should be used for the context menu.

Ah, yet another part of Everything I hadn't discovered. Thanks for that!

But that brings up another issue: the icon to use is a USER setting, whereas the context menu is a SYSTEM setting (by default; I added the context menu as a USER setting in my setup. That has to be done manually)

I've been using Everything for a long time and I like the original icon (or at least this was the icon used when I started using Everything).
Here is the custom icon for the program window (see customizing Everything), and the context menu icon (manual registry modifications).

Thanks David - I don't know if you provided those icons for me (as I have these icons already) or for others.

Thanks again for Everything!
