    Native Windows Apps have blank icons in taskbar.


    I upgraded my Windows 10 Pro 64bit to the Fall Creators update.
    Everything is working fine after the update except the native modern apps whi
    When I open them, their icons are missing from the taskbar and also from their thumbnails.
    If I search for the apps through Cortana, the apps appear without their icons as well.

    This is only happening with the native modern apps like Store, PC Settings and Edge.
    Third party apps like Flipboard dont have this problem, their icon is shown everywhere.
    To clarify, the problematic apps do work normally, it's their icon that is only missing.

    Here are some screenshots to see the problem for yourselves:

    I used google and discovered that this is a common problem which appears after the Fall Creators upgrade. I followed several solutions but with no success. (sfc, dism, powershell,etc).
    I am asking here in case someone has any other suggestion on how to fix this. Clean install is not an option.

    in any case, thanks for taking your time to read this.

    Exactly the same problem. Good to know I'm not on my own ( see my post: Icons missing for Calc/Edge/Mail etc after last update - Windows 10 Forums - I must have missed your one )

    I'd really like a solution for this, as it makes using the programs pretty annoying

    BTW: I just found these 2 posts:

    So it appears there is no "fix" for it yet
