    Missing icons in programs and features

    Some of the icons are missing from some of my programs installed in programs and features. Same goes for the programs i have in the start menu. How do i get the icons back again?

    I also want to change the name of some of my programs in programs and features.

    Solution: If a program in the start menu is missing its icon, simply right click on the program, click properties, click change icon, select the correct icon for the program and click apply. As for changing the names of the programs installed in programs and features, the portable version of ccleaner can do this.

    As for bringing back the missing icons for programs in programs and features, a system file check will scan the system files and bring back the missing icons.

    1. How do I change the name of the programs installed on my computer? I have tried CCleaner but sadly I cannot use it because it conflicts with steam
    2. Some of the icons on some of my progams are missing. How do I get them back?
    1. Make copies of the real shortcuts, rename them then hide the originals.

    Thanks, that brought back the icons from my programs in my start menu, but it didn't work for the programs installed in my control panel.

    CCleaner basically did the job of changing the names, sadly I cannot use the program because it conflicts with steam games. So any other options/programs are appriciated.

    Still have a problem.

    Should also mention that the icons from my programs in the control panel still disappears randomly sometimes.

    Well i got back the nvidia icon by installing the latest nvidia drivers, but from my experience, the icon will sooner or later disappear from the control panel again.

    Ccleaner has never 'changed the name' of any of the installed programs on my PC.
    I have to download ccleaner occasionally to change the names of my programs
    To which cleaner option do you attribute what you're seeing?

    Nor has it ever affected my control panel.

    I find it hard to imagine what you see happening. Screenshot maybe?

    You can specify what is to be excluded if it is doing something you don't want:

    Please could you explain which function or setting or use of ccleaner causes your program names to change.
