I just downloaded the latest version of CCleaner free. All my short icons have changed to image.png.ac4d778905f095a443d3c59762957191.png. How can I get the old Windows 10 default icon image for shortcuts?

It sounds like you have accepted the offer for the new CC browser when you installed CCleaner.

See here how to reset your Icons, it gives an example for PDFs but you use the same process for other types of file as well.

I assume we are talking about desktop shortcuts?

I'm on my phone at the moment but from memory you would change a shortcut icon by right clicking it and going into the properties. There is a button in there to "Change Icon" or similar wording.

Are you saying that all newly created shortcuts are being given a CC style icon?

If so then that's something that's something that the browser developers should be made aware if to get that behaviour stopped.

I'd have to look up how you can stop it yourself once I'm back on a Windows computer.

it seems to be a shortcut with html or other browserbendings "to open with the standard-browser"

normally takes windows-shortcut automatically the icon image from the target that open it (perhaps word, excel, firefox, txt or so) -> if it is an html or pdf-file association for the "default-browser" to open it -> in this case ccleaner-browser than takes this icon -> you can change this with choose another default-browser (i think in w10 there is internet-explorer or edge-browser...or what you will) and pdf and other file association in context with browser-openings

if you make an office-shortcut for example with an *.docx -> is there also the ccleaner-browser-icon?

Sounds like old outdated icon/thumbnail cache to me which can cause the wrong icon/thumbnail to display, and if that's the case the solution is easy:
1. Click Cortana/Search, and type in Disk Cleanup, and click it when found.
2. Select the C:\ drive, or the drive letter you have Windows 10 installed on.
3. Scroll down the list and select Thumbnails.
4. Click Ok, then when another dialog opens click Delete.

You may have to Sign Out or restart your computer for the icon/thumbnail cache to refresh.
