  1. Icons broke in Windows Search.


    90% of the icons are broken if I search for them in windows Search, they show instead the photos app icon. Is it a corruption? Has It something to do with the Google Drive file stream as I saw online? Is it even possible to fix this? I started getting this issue not exactly when I got the 20H2 update, but I don't think that's the reason it broke since it happened weeks later. Below are some example images of what is happening.
