Website Icons vs. Generic Explorer Icon

07-10-2005, 12:57 AM
I've been setting up a new computer with XP Home, and I had saved many
website icons to my desktop as shortcuts. Then, after running the XP
"program compatibility wizard" to configure an older HP printer for my new XP
computer, all my shortcut icons have now changed to a generic looking
Internet Explorer icon letter "e". Now my desktop looks terrible, looks like
I've stored a bunch of files on my desktop.

For example, if you go to the MSN website, and then in Internet Explorer go
to File/send/shortcut to desktop, you are supposed to get the MSN butterfly
icon on your desktop that you can use as a link to the MSN website, right?

But now, no matter what I do, no matter what website I go to, I can only get
the letter "e" icon saved to my desktop. It looks terrible, and you can only
identify the website icon by the text printed below it......Help

How do I get the icons I'm suppoesed to get instead of the generic internet
explorer letter "e" icon? ? ?

Thank you for any support with this.
