    Blank Thumbnails on Taskbar and Paper white images icon


    Hi, After the recent update 1709 -- (The fall update I think) I've encounter issues with thumbnail previewer. I does not show thumbnail images but default icon instead

    it wasn't my first time I've encountered this, It happened same thing on every updates. So knew I'd need to rebuild icon and thumbnail cache once again so I following this steps...

    Rebuild Icon Cache in Windows 10 Customization Tutorials
    Clear and Reset Thumbnail Cache in Windows 10 Customization Tutorials
    After Creators Update 2 thumbnails cache keeps auto-deleting Solved - Windows 10 Forums

    After few restart, it did not solve my issues issues, It did not rebuild cache but went for worst. Now I got I got a blank icon/thumbnails on taskbar (left of screen) and it seem to happen only on windows store app (i.e. calendar, mail, photo previewer and etc..) not the third party programs.

    I also have issues with images (almost most image format) showing paper white thumbnails, instead of previewer or default icon.

    I cannot fathom how this happen. I've spend hours goggling for solution, done many different methods on rebuilding icon and reboot pc 50+ times. Went through recovery and rollback version. sfc /scannow DISM. virus screening, disk cleaning and etc none of it detect my issues and its driving me nuts.
    Instead of having to reset windows and reinstall many of 3rd parties program again I was hoping there are solution. Would anyone by any chance know what the issues are? Thanks in advance.

    :)

  2. Thumbnails won't show images

    On Windows 10 my images aren't showing the image in the thumbnail. It's showing a pieces of blank paper. This randomly started happening today. I have checked the "Organize" setting and the "Always show icons, never thumbnails" is unchecked. I'm not sure
    what else to do. Any suggestions?

  3. Windows FCU – When will I get my UWP icons back?

    Thanks, but the icons are not hidden in desktop.

    UWP files, like .jpg (which I open with Photos app) are there, but blank – a plain white sheet of paper. After some time, it creates a thumb, but in the meantime, it's blank, not the Photos icon.

    This happens also in the TaskBar. Any UWP app I open doesn't have an Icon: Edge, Calculator, Settings, Twitter, Photos...

    This time it doesn't have a white sheet of paper icon, but completely blank, really. See below:

    This is Edge in the search result list:

    Edge in taskbar, no icon:

    Fresh JPG files in desktop before generating thumb (they open with Photos app... if I switch to open with any standard desktop application, it works perfectly)
