    Great news. Hopefully, they'll stay.

    Weird. This happened to me for the first time the other day. I just rebooted.

    Tonight when I booted up things were worse than ever. The icons along the left side were also gone.

    I went ahead and ran your .ico file, restarted, and as of now things are ok. Maybe that file finally did the trick.

    I have to revisit this topic. All icons have remained intact with the exception of Mozilla Thunderbird and OneDrive. Every time I restart my computer I have to unpin, repin and then resize these two icons. Any ideas why, or suggestions, please?

    Nikilet,

    If those two don't eventually display correctly, you could see if resetting the Start layout back to default may help, but you would have pin everything back again afterwards.

    I will, but I doubt they are going to stay. It's been long enough, I'd say, and they are still gone every time I boot my computer. I've saved your link for restoring back to default and thank you for the information. Just can't figure out why it would be those two every time.
