    Taskbar icons get corrupted


    I'm finding that my clean install of W10/64 gets corrupted "Store" and "Edge" taskbar icons if it's been running for any length of time or if I've been gaming. I haven't tried to troubleshoot or isolate the cause. I've only taken note of the problem. Shrug.

    A reboot cleans them up.

    Edge has white behind the "e". Store is just a white square. My other taskbar icons are good. See the pic.

    Use Option Two. It's easiest.

    2. Foe a good measure, run Icon cache rebuild

    Simpler solution.

    I right-clicked on an open part of the taskbar. That opens up the taskbar menu.

    I selected "small icons", apply. That fixed the "edge" icon, though it was small.

    I selected "large icons", apply. That fixed the "store" icon. Now all are large, and normal.
