3. In the left pane of this location, create a new key by navigating right click -> New -> Key. Name this key as Max Cached Icons. Make sure you’ve used spaces in between.
4. When you create the key in step 3, it will automatically create a Default string in the right pane of the key. Double click on that string to modify it. Put the Value data in this window as 8192 or 4096:
