Windows 10 Pro + others in VHDs
Sometims an icon on a desktop shortcut disappears, and when I select properties, change icon, and navigate to the .exe file, I can see the icon but cannot select it.

I note the .exe file has no icon either. It seems the icon on the .exe file disappears, then then shortcut follows suit.

Any ideas why?

Yeah just tried it - no difference. I am just going to give it a custom icon.

Thanks anyway.
