Windows Atom Icons for files appearing as blank


Hello, when I started using atom about a year ago, all files I had made to open in Atom as default, would have a Atom icon. Now they just show up as a blank file icon on Windows. These files are indeed already associated with Atom and still show a blank file icon. How can I fix this?


If you open the Settings View you’ll find a System tab. There are some settings in there with regard to file associations. If you uncheck them and recheck them, things should go back to the way you want.


This was an issue in Atom 1.11. Make sure you are running Atom 1.12 or later. The icon changed in Atom 1.12 from the Atom icon to one that looks more like an Atom document.
