    I recently reloaded Windows XP on this computer and got everything working the way I liked it except for one thing. A very stupid but very annoying thing.

    Basically, I want my .jpg icon to look like #1 in the attachments below. But they stay like #2. I know XP must be capable of this since before I reloaded it, the icons were as I specified. But I can't figure out how to solve this annoying dilema.

    Any tips?

    I'm not sure but this might help you
    To repair the file association for your .jpg files, you need to correct the properties. Right-click a JPEG file with the icon and choose properties from the menu. On the General tab, click the change button. then chose what you want associat with it . If you have a preferred image editing app select that. like MS-paint.
    When you click OK you should see all JPEG files on your system with an icon for MS-paint. When you correct file associations for one file, Windows sets the default for all files of that type on your system. hope this helps ya
