    Blank Start Menu Icons


    Since my upgrade from windows 7, all my start menu icons are blank. I've tried deleting the icon cache.db file, doesn't help.

    I used the bat file to rebuild the icon cache, did sfc /scannow, the DISM command, and used the reg file to re associate the .ico file type. Icons are still blank, it did not work.

    Do say every programs icon is blank there, even Microsoft apps to the right, do not see them in pic you captured ? Are you suing any Start Menu programs like Classic Shell or Start10 ? Saying this happened exactly after upgrade was finished ? Wanted to know, if any restore points before this exactly looked this way.

    1. Microsoft apps are ok. Maps, Camera, ect are fine.
    2. I am not using Classic Shell or Start10.
    3. Yes, this happened right after my upgrade from windows 7.
    4. And, no. I don't have any restore points where the icons are ok. As I said, it happened as soon as I got windows 10.

    Besides the ADOBE programs in that same list there are also ones not pinned to the right of the Start menu,also system programs and MS ones, you say they are fine it is just only all third party software on system from upgrade you had already ? If so either try a reinstall of those programs will just modify the install and overwrite existing program or other option be to try a refresh. If it is every third party program was on it before, except for any MS.

    If no restore points, SFC or Dism did not help along with doing icon cache rebuild done correctly, not sure what else yet to try.

    I tried to reinstall one program already, the icon was still blank. as you can see here, MS programs are fine. So far windows 10 has not impressed me.
