Windows 10: Another jump list query/issue

    Another jump list query/issue

    Both IE11 and Firefox pinned to taskbar. On both I have both frequent sites and pinned sites on their respective jump lists. They work ok but often after initial login I will right click the pinned browsers and some or all of the pinned sites and frequent sites will show as generic white paper icons instead of their proper favicon icon. Subsequent right clicks are then fine showing the icons in the jump list properly. But this seems a weird behaviour and I wondered if anyone else had noticed it? It only affects the website icons and nothing else.

    Itís such a minor issue that I probably wonít try to jump through hoops to fix but if there is an easy and quick idea Iíd be interested to hear it

    Typically that happens because the system is reloading standard icon cache. Especially after a reboot this can take a minute or two.

    If the cache has grown quite large you might try clearing it. I'm afraid I don't recall the exact command to do that.

    At any rate it isn't a big problem either way.

    Ok thanks. Just strange, our other decrepit pc doesnít do this anamoly. Whilst this pc with boot SSD does.

    I now noticed that it isnít just IE and Mozilla but for any pinned icons (not tasks or frequent) as I have file explorer pinned to the taskbar and right clicking it will give generic yellow folders for all the pinned folders such as documents, music etc. But then if i click away from it so the list disappears and redo the right click on file explorer then the pinned icons draw correctly whereby the documents, music folders have their correct icon. And itís only first time it happens, so because I did this on file explorer now my first right click on say the pinned IE11 will draw all the correct pinned favicons first time of asking when right clicking to display the jumplist. Itís as if the first right click forces a process to draw the pinned icons for jumplists for all applications. I tested leaving the system alone for a while after initial login and it doesnít make a difference, this pinned icon anamoly is there until a right click for a jump list on any pinned item (whether it be in the taskbar or the start menu).

    as you mention itís not a big problem but itís proving tough to ignore!

    I wonder if there is a batch or a task that can autorun / be created to force/simulate (on login or start up) the process of right clicking a pinned app to make the pinned jump list icons draw without user intervention. It only needs to be for my user account as the other (barely used) family user accounts seem immune to the problem
