3DBrowser icons sometime appears instead application icons in the taskbar

Windows 10 sometimes displays bad icons for application in the taskbar.
Depending on your settings, the icons might be a 3DBrowser icon.
Below is the way Acrobat Reader might appears in your taskbar.

The problem is due to a problem in the way the taskbar extract the icon from the application.
It uses the application that has been associated with the .ico extension.
The problem is that once an application has been selected for opening such kind of file, then its icons is used in the taskbar.
If you used 3DBrowser for opening .ico files, then you'll see a 3DBrowser icon.

The only solution (do it carefully and do nothing if you are not sure) is to delete the following registry key, using regedit.

Ordinateur\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.ico\UserChoice

Once this has been done, you must kill the explorer.exe tasks, or restart your session or restart your computer.
Normally you'll then see the correct icon in the taskbar.

Now acrobat reader appears correctly in your taskbar.

has this been solved in later versions ?. I find this absolutely unacceptable. I checked in my .ico registry entry. I dont have a userchoice. I find the behavior of 3dbrowser incredibly intrusive. The application should not behave this way by default, and if nothing else, it should be possible to revert.

Please let me know when this is fixed so that i can actually see my icons again.

Hello Heimlich,

Yes this has been solved. What is you version of 3DBrowser?
What is you OS?

In Windows 10, 3DBrowser does not associate to any extension.
This is the choice of the user and this has to be done manually through the Choose default apps by file type windows association panel.
You can get access by typing Choose default apps in the Windows Search field in the task bar.
