    Icons disappeared from the Start screen


    All of the icons for the desktop apps have suddently disappeared from my start menu.
    This morning, upon logging into my account I was presented with this:

    No desktop app - except for Microsoft Word, god knows why - had an icon. Instead, they're all blank. The All Apps section looks the same.

    Is there something I can do to solve this?

    Hello, have you tried searching the forum? A number of threads on this topic exist.

    E.g.
    Solved All my Icons/shortcuts Are Blank - Windows 10 Forums
    (Doesn't help everyone)

    and this suggests a couple of ideas:

    Suggestion :

    Do a system restore. Pick a date when you did not have this problem as your restore point.
