    Wherever the program is actually installed he must be launching it from somewhere, presumably the Start Menu or whatever Win10 calls that now.

    If this is the case then he should still be able to...

    I did misunderstand the OP and assumed he wanted to create his own icon for the desktop shortcut but the information in my last post should still be useful.

    The problem is he doesn't have the original document so a lot of our advice is moot anyway.

    Even with a more sophisticated graphics program if the information is not there in the original image file you have there is no way to enhance it now. There may be high end specialist forensic...

    You're right. They've changed it. The IrfanView main program link on the same page still leads to the direct download but the plugins (64bit) both from the page I linked to and the options on the...

    It could well be the OP used one of the promoted mirror web sites from the default download page rather than the recommended direct download. That is actually the 32bit version page but links to...
