    The live tiles for apps pinned to your Start screen cache the data that flips across them. Sometimes when you delete something, the cached version will still show up on the live tile of an app.

    Clearing the live tile cache will reset the live tiles to update them.

    This tutorial will show you how to clear the live tile cache for your account in Windows 10.
    Tip   Tip
    You can look at the value of the ResetCacheCount DWORD in the registry key below to see how many times your live tile cache has been reset after being reset using the downloadable .bat file.

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ImmersiveShell\StateStore

    Here's How:

    1. Click/tap on the Download button below to download the .bat file below.

    Clear_Live_Tile_cache.bat

    download
    Note   Note
    Contents of the .bat file:
    Code:
    @echo off
    
    REG ADD "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ImmersiveShell\StateStore" /V ResetCache /T REG_DWORD /D 1 /F
    
    taskkill /f /im explorer.exe
    start explorer.exe

    2. Save the .bat file to your desktop.

    3. Unblock the .bat file.

    4. Run the .bat file.

    5. You will now notice your screen flicker as a command prompt quickly opens and closes to run the command to reset the live tile cache, then restarts the explorer process to apply.



    That's it,
    Shawn

    Hello C,

    Setting ResetCache to 1 and restarting explorer process is what resets the live tile cache.

    After explorer as been restarted, ResetCache gets automatically set back to 0 (non-reset state), and the ResetCacheCount value automatically increases by 1 for how many total times the live tile cache has been reset.

    The tutorial pretty much already states all that.
