HWiNFO64 Icon disappears after move


New Member
Have installed HWiNFO64 (on Windows 10), which places an icon on my desktop. When I move that icon to a folder (Tools) which is on my desktop, then the HWiNFO64 program has no icon anymore (See picture below). When I move it back to the desktop, the icon appears again.

How can I retain the icon when I move it to my tools desktop folder?

Right click on the icon and check the differences when placed on desktop and in the other folder. That should also allow you to check what icon is being used.
