I noticed that after the update to windows 10 pro 64bit to version 1903 that the Notepad.exe shortcut I had on my desktop had no icon. when I double click it... Notepad does indeed run.
So I alternate clicked the shortcut and looked at the properties
what I discovered was that the shortcut in my start menu points to c:\windows\system32
and my shortcut that was made before the update to 1903 points to c:\windows
In the image above it shows that the notepad.exe in the original location actually has a newer version number and no icon
I am not sure if this is an oversight or if the file was corrupted when I upgraded to 1903
Can anyone verify the notepad.exe duality?
