    A while ago, ALL my htm and html file icons in Windows Explorer changed to white paper icons with the corners turned town.

    I do not have this problem with any other icons–just htm and html.
    I do not have this problem with other file managers, such as XYplorer or Shelless.

    The problem is only htm and html file icons in Windows Explorer.

    Any suggestions appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Janet

    As a guess, someone has used “open with” and selected a different app as the default, and this has changed the icon
    Do they open in IE when double clicked?

    Regardless, you can change the file icon by following the instructions here:

    or here:
    http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/57455-file-extension-icon-change-default-icon.html

    (both require downloading a utility to do the changes)
