Windows 10: Office xp shortcut bar Icons do not display

    Office xp shortcut bar Icons do not display


    I have used the Office XP shortcut bar with every windows version up to windows 7 without problems. When I upgraded to Windows 10, the Icons only show a ? and the program associated with the icon will only execute if I right click on the icon and click either open or run as administrator. The program name associated with the icon will display when I hover over the icon.

    Is there any fix for displaying the actual icon picture? I have more programs that I use daily than would fit on the task bar. I don't want to clutter my desktop with icons. The shortcut bar allows me to organize my program icons in different task bars so I would like to continue using it.

    It's been a dozen or so years since I last worked with Office XP/2002 but have you tried right-clicking each of the icons and choosing Properties then at the bottom click the Change Icon? Doing things on Win8.0/8.1 and 10 became more problematic with old programs, might be because of the Tiles feature.
