After performing a normal update (from inside EmEditor) yesterday, to the most recent stable version (from just a couple of minor versions earlier), the taskbar icon all of a sudden changed to a version that looks like some kind of special low-resolution / low-color version of the normal icon, which does not look very good at all?
The program icon that shows when alt-tabbing to EmEditor in Windows is still the same old icon as always though.
Why could this have happened, and how do I get back the old icon for EmEditor in the taskbar?
I have a small screenshot of the icon, but cannot find any way to attach it here?April 15, 2016 at 2:42 pm #20744
Did you change the Windows Display settings, “Change the size of text, apps, and other items” (DPI)? If this is not 100%, you might want to revert to 100% and see if you can resolve the issue.

No, I did not change anything, it just happened the second I performed the update of EmEditor. :-(April 17, 2016 at 10:36 am #20750
Please confirm, are you using 100% in the Windows Display Settings? You can also send me a screenshot at tech at emurasoft.com.

Yes, 100% is used (and most importantly, this setting has absolutely not been touched either before, during or after the update), and I have now sent a screenshot excerpt (which also includes the 100% settings screen) to your email as per your request above.April 17, 2016 at 5:57 pm #20754
From the screenshot you sent me, the EmEditor icon used is 16 colors. Do you use any reduced color mode in your Windows Personalization?

No, I use 32-bit color (and as you could also see on the other icons in that screenshot, they were absolutely not 16 colors-only).April 18, 2016 at 11:47 am #20759
Is it only the Taskbar Icon that has the 16-color effect? Are other EmEditor shortcut icons (desktop and start menu) OK? Since the Taskbar icon was not updated by the EmEditor installer, you might want to unpin the icon from Taskbar, and then pin again when EmEditor is running. Can you try?

Yes, it’s only the taskbar icon that has this effect. The Start menu and desktop icons are the normal high-color ones, as ever.
I just tried unpinning/repinning from the taskbar too as per your request, but it made no difference.April 19, 2016 at 1:23 pm #20763
After unpin the EmEditor icon from the Taskbar, can you right-click on the EmEditor icon on the Start menu, and add it to the Taskbar? If you are using Windows 10, you can right-click the EmEditor icon on the Start menu, click “More”, and then “Pin to taskbar”.

Yes, I already tried that too (that’s what I meant with “repinning” here above). The icon is the same both before pinning it again and after pinning it again.
