    To summarize:

    1. I am experiencing this problem on all my machines having Windows 10 (so particular installation issue is ruled out).
    2. Other people are experiencing it as well (so something that I did wrong is ruled out).
    3. I have no other application and I have never heard about any other application that would cause such behaviour (so system, or system-application edge is ruled out).

    In my opinion, above clearly means that there's a bug somewhere in IrfanView itself or in its installer and that should be reported to the author.

    But, others here claims that this is caused by Windows 10 and don't see the problem.

    I have a dozens of system applications, control panel and configuration items (each different on each computer) that has its original icon replaced in search. I learned myself to live on with this thought this pisses me a little bit, because IrfanView's icon is just ugly (way too old and way too colorful for today's clean designs).

    Did anyone send a bug report to Irfan Skiljan?

    IrfanView overrides standard icons in Start Menu and this mess remains even after uninstall.

    Nothing helps, even cleaning up a lot of trash left in registry from IrfanView. Resetting icon and tile cache in Windows 10 doesn't work as well.

    Doesn't posting to the forum count as bug report? What is the link to the issue tracker then?

    This is a user-to-user forum. Irfan Skiljan, the developer of IrfanView, is not involved.
    If you have a feature request or you found a suspected bug, you may want to send him an email.
    Goto 'Help > About IrfanView' for his mail address.

    I can confirm this is still an issue as of 03/22/2020: fresh out-of-the-box Windows 10 1909 Laptop, after the initial settings (language, privacy settings, username, ...) were done, run Windows Update until no new updates were available, reboot, download latest IrfanView 64bit Installer and Plugins-Installer, boom! Settings, Phone, Calculator all have now the IrfanView Icon!

    This is so bad!
    Uninstalled IrfanView, no changes!

    I 0d like to have a fix, as this is a customer laptop!

    thx & cheerioh

    My initial post was NOT a solution! It works only for the pinned App in your start menu, but not, if you search for an app in the start menu. The search result app icons are still set to IrfanView!

    It's even worse. Found out, that also the ITunes Icon is affected, which is not a built-in Windows App!

    I've never seen something similar with any other program - never! And it's so simpel to reproduce (for the programmer): Set up a Windows 10 virtual machine, snap shot, install irfanvien, boom! calculator and photo app icon are messed up. Revert to snapshot, install e.g. XNView - nothing, install Photoshop, nothing, install anything you like, nothing, install IrfanView again, booom!

    This is so bad. Non-Experienced user are having trouble to understand: "Well, yes, type itunes, but the irfanview icon shows up, click anyway on the irfanview icon, it will start itunes".

    I therefore won't recommend and install IrfanView anymore on any new Windows 10 platform!
