Windows 10: Icons for many apps not showing in Start menu

    Icons for many apps not showing in Start menu


    As per the image below - why are many of my apps not showing their icons? There's not options to change them and I've tried pinning the original .exe and shortcuts to the app but there is no difference. Any clues?

    Hey, I've got the same problem. I've tried resetting icon cache as it didn't seem to help at all. I've also noticed that if you manually change icon to anything else than the default icon, it changes correctly (even if it's the same icon, just taken from different file).

    Any help appreciated ^^

    Thanks for the tip.

    I managed to get some of the icons changed, Open file location > change icon etc. but it's pretty random and some I can't get to change to what I want.

    I had this issue with folders in one of the Insider builds (can't remember which one) and never found a solution. Only updating to the next build cured it.
