So I have MS Office and Acrobat X installed on this Macbook Pro and the files created in both look like they should (correct looking icons, I mean) everywhere else on the hard drive, including in folders placed on the desktop. The also open with the correct applications. However, files placed on the desktop show with a generic looking icon, though they do open with the correct applications. Does anyone know if this can be corrected so they show with the appropriate application icon? I did search a little bit, but I didn't find this referenced. Apologies if it has, in fact, been answered already.
