Web site shortcut icons became tiny

the desktop icons for web sites became tiny. Why and how to fix them. Here is more detail: I transferred the desktop from an old windows10 computer to a new one. The desktop appeared, but most, not all. of the web page shortcut icons became plain generic white background with a tiny image of the proper site icon in the middle. I would like to regain the regular size icons, but have not found a way. There are dozens of ways to substitute a new icon from various image sources, but that is not the problem. I tried re-obtaining the site icon by dragging from the URL padlock image, but got the same tiny image. The white generic shortcut is the usual size, but the image is just a tiny thing in its center. What is going on, and how do I fix it?
