    I do not really get what you're saying, can you please be a bit more precisely? Maybe I can help you further then.

    You could try to right-click the games, click preferences and maybe you can change the icon there. I don't really use the game folder in windows, but I assume that it is just a standard folder in windows. Have you got the same problem when you drag your games into another folder? If not, it could be a problem in the game folder and so a sort of glitchy point in windows. You could also try to make a shortcut to the game and place that in the folder.

    Yes I do have that problem when I drag these two games into my folder it shows up as this icon(fILE ONE) now since I'm on my own PC things will be a bit easier. as you can see the two games with a weird icon are there but it's only these games and I'm thinking it's they game source in which I downloaded them from AKA steam so maybe steam games are causing the problem I don't know I've never heard of anyone having this problem before but thanks for your help so far

    Np!:yay:
    I think it's a problem that windows can't recognise the place where the original game is placed, because it has a sort of double-place (steam and your pc) but normally this doesn't have to be a problem.
    But as I mentioned earlier, you can always give the game a custom shortcut picture in preferences, so all you have to do is nip some pictures from google and use them for your games.
