    Hi People,

    Has anyone noticed that the folder icon for "Public Documents" is small, and can't be resized to extra large, or large like the other Public folder icons? I've noticed this on my two vista machines, and was wondering if anyone else noticed this? Or if I just stuffed something.

    Cheers!

    This is how mine looks below on both of my Vista machines:

    I always thought it was just a design oversight. No one else has had this issue? It's a very superficial problem I know :p

    OK. I was looking at a different view!
    I messed with the folders and found out some very strange things. If you go into that small folder and delete the *.ini file you see there, the picture returns to normal size but - the "Public Documents" , then becomes "Documents" probably unhealthy to mess with?
    However, if you dare, you can manually renmae it back to the original. The Desktop.ini is restored but the Icon becomes small again.
    Maybe an expert can enlighten you more.

    Thanks Dave. It's not a huge deal because it's only the public folders, I just thought it was strange that it was overlooked when going into development and wondered if anyone else ever noticed it.
