  1. Apps missing icons in the Start Menu search results


    The icons for my applications have not been showing up in the start menu search ever since I reset my computer but kept the important files. How do I fix this? I've tried the bare minimum of restarting my computer as well as a few other things, but nothing seems to work. Any help would be appreciated.


    Here is an example of what happens when I search apps in the start menu: Apps missing icons in the Start Menu search results 3e96237e-2f15-4a85-935c-0ee90835bdb3?upload=true.png

  2. MS Store apps icons are missing in search results

    I get the same issue as described here App icons missing in start menu search results

    To reproduce it I

    1. Open Start menu
    2. Type an app name (UWP app only)
    3. Look at the search results

    Consistently, UWP apps have no icons in the search results while W32 or x64 apps do.

    I have already attempted to :

    - Flush icon cache (as described in the linked post above)

    - Repair app store

    - SFC /Scannow

    - DISM /Repairhealth

    - Restore/Reset individual apps

    And none of them worked.

    So Please, do not claim this question if you have not experienced this and fixed it yourself.

    Thank you very much

    App icons missing in start menu search results

    Hi there, I hope you're having a great weekend Apps missing icons in the Start Menu search results :)

    I am having a problem with the app icons in the search results of my windows start menu. The icons won't show up. Instead, it displays the same placeholder for all apps. Let the attached GIF animation speak for itself. Within the app list itself, the icons
    show up correctly. Another interesting note: I recently installed a new application, and the icons show up correctly.
