    Yes, exactly, with full reboot!

    No, skipped_files.txt is just an unrelated file I have on my desktop.

    Open an administrator command prompt (Cmd) and run sfc /scannow.
    It will take a bit of time. After run
    Open an administrator command prompt (Cmd) and run sfc /scannow.
    It will take a bit of time. After run
    DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
    reboot after

    You may have some corrupt files

    here's what I got

    Code:
    C:\Windows\system32>sfc /scannow
    
    Beginning system scan.  This process will take some time.
    
    Beginning verification phase of system scan.
    Verification 100% complete.
    
    Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them.
    For online repairs, details are included in the CBS log file located at
    windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For offline
    repairs, details are included in the log file provided by the /OFFLOGFILE flag.
    
    C:\Windows\system32>DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    You might also try building a new user yo see if it re occurs under it.
    Add Local Account or Microsoft Account in Windows 10

    Log in as a different user. Does the problem persist?

    If I navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer, there is no Shell Icons folder.

    There is a Shell Folders, a ShellExecuteHooks, a ShellIconOverlayIdentifiers and a ShellServiceObjects folder, but no Shell Icons folder.

    I checked on my other Windows 10 computer that doesn't have the same issue and it also doesn't have the Shell Icons folder.

    Any ideas?
