    Missing App Icons on Taskbar

    No app icons will appear on the taskbar. They show fine in the Start menu, but are missing on the taskbar. It only includes apps, no installed programs are having this issue. This includes calculator, Edge, Xbox, etc. I tried rebuilding the icon cache from this tutorial, but it still didn't work. I've included a screenshot for reference.

    Unfortunately this issue has been shortly after I installed Win 10, and has persisted through many restarts.
