Problems refreshing icons on desktop and system tray (Solution)

I have come across a problem with a few customers, at least a couple of machines, with the problem of not refreshing the System Tray ( right next to the clock wlEmoticon-winkingsmile.png ) and the desktop icons.


You can simply solve this problem by following the steps below.
Lets start,

To refresh system tray icons;

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\TrayNotify

find and delete IconStreams ve PastIconStream variables on the right pane,


Ctrl-Alt-Delete and open Task Manager, select explorer.exe under Processes and Finish Process.

Click Applications, select New Task, type explorer.exe and press Enter.

To refresh the desktop icons;

C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Local
go to folder, delete the hidden IconCache.db file, and then restart the computer.



Test multiple URLs with PowerShell Script

If you are a web application administrator or you are building infrastructure, you may need to work with many URLs and test them at the same time.

This script allows you to create URLs with .txt documents or web address parameters you write and test them with Internet Explorer or Chrome. It also allows you to get test results as .log.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need a similar script or if you have any problems.
Do not forget to follow 🙂


#Script starts here

#Get country and language codes with fr/fr format
#$counlang = Get-Content ‘C:\script\counlang.txt’
# Test Country and Language
$counlang = “noo/no”,”no/no”,”fi/en”,”fi/tr”
