    Hi catikitty. I started a thread today about the same kind of issue. Only apps placed on the desktop as shortcuts have the icons goes blank issue. Not a problem if they are pinned to taskbar. Wasn't related to the icon cache as I tried to rebuild it and still same issue on both a desktop and laptop. Unfortunately I don't know the reason for this issue. Good luck.
    I build the Quick Launch Bar with every clean install. The same happens to icons in my QL Bar occasionally. At the moment, Macrium Reflect has a "blank piece of paper" icon, but the rest seem to be OK on my Production partition.

    I'll go over and check my Insider partition to see what's going on over there. brb.

    OK, everything is fine on the Insider Preview side; all icons are fine.

    FWIW, I never, ever put icons on my desktop. They're just ugly and cover up my nice wallpaper.
