Windows 10: Invisible windows app icons and lost thumbnails.

  1.    21 Nov 2017 #1

    Invisible windows app icons and lost thumbnails.

    I had some invisible icons on my taskbar (not all of them, seems to be only windows apps) and I tried an online fix which suggested deleting the icon cache. However, this didn't work and now I have no thumbnails for any of my files so I can't tell what anything is. Very frustrating so would appreciate any help.

    Could you try deleting the thumbnails cache through disk cleanup.
