Why GnuPG encrypted file has no icon?

I guess .asc extension is only when you select "ASCII Armor" option. If you don't select this option it is .pgp.
I tried "Open With", but don't know which .exe to select to associate .pgp extension.

If Windows has an application associated with the file extension, the
file will be shown with that application's icon. And double-clicking
the file will cause that application to perform a default action on
that file, for example double-clicking a .txt file on a Windows
machine will usually open the file using Notepad.
You could try right-clicking one of your .gpg files and selecting
"open with", keeping the "always use this app" box ticked, click "more
apps", and select GnuPG. (It might show as "GnuPG's OpenPGP Tool".)
Not sure why you get .pgp files; I get .asc.
