    Randomly disappearing taskbar and start icons


    I have tried doing fresh installs of Windows 10 multiple times but I always face this issue where items in the start menu and/or taskbar jump lists disappear randomly. I am attaching a screenshot for this. This also happens when after I close any game (Eg. Battlefield 4, Tomb Raider etc).

    The icons, though invisible are still working if I move my cursor over them and click them. Restarting explorer.exe fixed the problem temporarily.

    Hi sabaatworld and welcome to Ten forums!

    Can you give us some more information.

    You mentioned fresh install. Always from same source? Is media OK?
    Did you try to clean jump lists, icon cache etc...

    Picture shows icons are there, but no text. Is info behind still there? Hoover mouse pointer over icon with empty text box (not pinned, below in list) to see if text - path info shows..
