What is the default default icon for Windows 8? Somehow the default icon was changed while changing other system icons without changing the default icon.

What do you mean by the "default icon"?


I always love Windows XP!

    XP was my idea. 3rd party apps make NT6 my idea.

The default icon is the icon Windows shows for a file not associated with any program.


Impossible to run NT6 without third party fixes.

If you don't install or apply any other icon packs then all the icons on your Windows are default icons!

There is a default default icon, but unable to locate it.

 

The default default icon is an icon that doesn't have any file association. It's either blank or something else.

The default icon is the first icon in shell32.dll and it can be changed by going to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Icons in the registry. Create a string value called 0 there and the value data should be the path of the icon, e.g. C:\Windows\Notepad.exe,1. Then send a shell change notification to force Explorer to rebuild its shell image list or restart Windows.
