    IE10 Mouseover


    Hi Can anyone explain why when I hover my cursor over the IE icon in my taskbar, I see numbers?
    Thanks!

    It should say "Internet Explorer" - Check the source file and see if it has been renamed to... - Actually, that looks like a phone number. If that's your's you better change the image.

    Exactly. It's not a phone number, and I haven't re-named the source file, as I don't know where the source file is.

    Hello Eight,

    As a test, unpin IE from your taskbar, then pin the "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" file back to see if it works properly afterwards.

    The problem is very easy to replicate:

    Click image for larger version

    This is probably just a mis-named shortcut to IE.

    Follow Brink's procedure to fix your issue. Note that I just dragged IE to the task bar as my method of pinning. Good luck.

    Click image for larger version

    PS - You can also delete the mis-named shortcut after the above is completed.
