    There is a program called http://www.idesksoft.com/ that has the ability to hide just the Icons and\or text.

    You need to rebuild the Icon cache: Icon Cache - Rebuild in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

    I might observe in connection with Spunk's on-target advice that the free WinAero Tweaker has a one click item in its "Tools" section called "Reset icon cache" that greatly simplifies this task.

    I use this program myself, and have followed its developer, Sergey Tkachenko for some years now. He's completely on the up-and-up.

    Hi, in your first post you said you'd tried rebuilding the cache. So, what happens if you create a new user for test purposes and log in as that user? (Could be a local user to make it easier).

    This would prove or eliminate the possibility of user profile corruption.

    Try this re-build icon cache method if you haven't done this method:

    1) Go to: Icon Cache - Rebuild in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
    Download under Option One: Rebuild_Icon_Cache.bat
    ​Run it and follow it from there
