    UWP App icons sometimes don't display on taskbar.

    Hey everyone! I'm having an issue where various UWP app icons no longer display in the taskbar. Win32 apps all display correctly. Please see my attached screenshot for an example. I've reset the icon cache etc to no avail. Thank you!

    I found the solution: Classic Shell was somehow responsible. Uninstalling Classic Shell fixed the issue.

    That's strange- people have been happy with that.

    Try its successor- which is being maintained- and uses the same source code - Open Shell.
    Download Open-Shell (Formerly Classic-Start) - MajorGeeks

    GitHub - Open-Shell/Open-Shell-Menu: Reborn of Classic Shell.

    There's a huge thread on this here.
