    App icons have a white background in Taskbar & show no icons in search results?


    Since about November, all the icons of my UWP Apps on two of my PCs! suddenly appeared to be "broken".

    This is what they look like on the Taskbar

    And this is what i get on the search results. Right now they display the default image icon of my Photo viewer XNview, but before that they would just show the default white empty icon. The icons still show up correctly if i pin them to my start menu, or search for them manually in the apps list.


    I have tried all methods of deleting icons caches i could find. I was looking for errors with "sfc /scannow", and tried resetting the Windows Store. Creating a new user account made no difference either. Setting the Explorer options to "Always show icons instead of thumbnails" did nothing.

    :)

  2. Windows APPS ICON NOT SHOWING PROPERLY on taskbar


    It's been couple of days since I upgraded my system to Windows 10 from Windows 7. Everything is working fine except this nasty error. If I pin apps to taskbar or run apps , the app icons on the taskbar are shown as white square. And I am seeing the same thing on Apps & Feature settings list. The icons are there but as the backgrounds are shown as grey-white chequered pattern (for the transparency ), it looks like white squares. Rebuilt the icon cache but to no avail.

    And on the start menu everything looks fine.

    Windows Apps Icons with white background


    Hello folks,

    it's the time of the year again - the fresh install of my machine is nearly complete.

    However, this time, I have applied the Turquoise Icon Set (Turquoise 1.3 by BluPaper on DeviantArt).

    While it works flawless on the icons in my explorer.exe, it has messed up the Windows App icons in the taskbar (see screenshot).
    As you can see, the icon right to the foobar player is supposed to be the native Mail App. And right of that one is the Wunderlist app, which has also lost its transparency and displays a white background. Affected are all Windows 10 apps.
    Those same icons in the start menu are displaying properly, however.

    Is there any possible solution to fixing this problem without uninstalling the icon set again? *Confused

    Thanks in advance.

    System Icons on taskbar

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Communities.

    Are you referring to the clock system icon on the taskbar?

    If so, I suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below:


    • Click on the search bar on the taskbar.

    • Type system icons.

    • Under Turn System Icons ON or OFF, turn On the Clock and check with the issue.

    Hope it helps.
