  1. App Icons missing in Windows Search Bar


    Hello, I've been having this problem for 2 months where the app icons of certain applications duch as those from MS Store are missing in the search bar, however apps that I installed seperately load up correctly, I found a question similar to this but the answer didn't help and the issue still persists. I've deleted the iconcache.db file, resizing icons and creating a new account this works but when I go back to my old account the problem is still there. I have attached a screenshot below:

    App Icons Missing

    Hi Donna,

    Corrupted applications are the possible causes why your program icons are missing after an update. To isolate your issue, we'd like to clarify a few things:

    • When you hover your mouse over your taskbar or Start menu, are you seeing the icons for your apps?
    • Have you tried searching for a specific app and check if it will appear on the search results?

    Meanwhile, we suggest that you repair and reset your applications using the steps shared by Meliton Dec on this

    about restoring missing apps.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    App Icons missing in Windows Search Bar

    Cortana search does not show icons for metro apps

    Hi there, I have a similar imperfection which showed up upgrading to creators pack 2. When I search for Window store apps, (i.e. Mail, Calculator, Feedback, Edge) with Cortana, I always get blank icons. The app icons appear if I dock them to start or to task bar and they all work. It's only the icon that is missing when I search.

    I have tried rebuilding search index, reinstalling whatever apps I can actually reinstall (like mail) and what was suggested above, but it does not fix it. Any ideas?

    I have reported it to Microsoft via feedback app, but wondering if anyone else has been able to manually fix it.
