    Steam Game Shortcuts not working


    Since first installing 1903 as release preview I've found that Steam game shortcuts aren't working properly. This is despite a clean install on the release of 1903. Not sure what's going on.

    Try removing the shortcuts and then create them again. Mine are still fine after installing 1903

    Hi, thanks for replying. Tried that and they're still blank.

    One thing Ive just noticed is that the web document tab is missing which is where you can change the icons etc. Do you have that on yours? I did uninstall IE as I don't use it but if that's the cause, I'll have to install it again.

    I have reinstalled IE and sure enough, icon works again. So I think its fairly certain that was the cause. Seems strange that in 2019 that still needs IE.

    I guess it needed the file association. Glad you got it!
