  1. Solved windows 10 start icon refreshed after updating but showing old icons in search


    It is because of old icon cache. For this we have to clear it. Use keyboard shortcut "windows + R" and the run window will appear then type or paste the command " %localappdata%\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.Search_cw5n1h2txyewy\localstate\AppIconCache " and delete the folder 100 by using "shift + del delete" button and then hit enter now you can search any app and you will see that icons are refreshed in windows 10 search same as windows start menu icons.

    :)

  2. Windows 10 Search not refreshing old icons.

    Windows 10 Search keeps showing old icons for all apps. If an app get an update with a new icon, the icon get refreshed automatically everywhere, except Windows Search Box Result.
    Tried a lot of tweaks such as Resetting Windows Search through Powershell, Rebuilding Search Index, Rebuilding Icon cache, Saving thumbnail from Advanced System Settings but nothing worked. The icons won't refresh automatically after
    app updates, neither for Microsoft Store App nor for Third Party App. But I get icons for newly installed apps.
    Though, Changing Text and Images from100% to 125%>Restart>Change back from 125% to 100% refreshes the icons, but it is a
    temporary solution only. Icons don't get refreshed later after any app updates.

    I also deleted all files from %LOCALAPPDATA%\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.Cortana_cw5n1h2txyewy\LocalState\AppIconCache\100 directory, searched for apps and all icons are refreshed instantly. But if I update another app afterwards, icons for them
    won't be refreshed anymore.

    I also re-installed Cortana through Powershell and icons got refreshed, but if I update another app afterwards, icons for them won't be refreshed anymore(Same problem everytime). How to make those AppIconCache fixed? Please help.

  3. Remove Linux Desktop Icons

    I am not sure whether this will work (Ubuntu does not have icons like that on the desktop by default), but I suggest opening the trash bin and sweeping the icons into the window showing the trash bin.

    Windows 10 desktop icons not in order

    In ccleaner, did you uncheck cleaning the icon cache... have not used in a while; however, I think that is what the option is called.

    Now, if you are setting the icons and they move after you have set the settings and not changed them... you may have the "Random Windows 10 Icon movement problem".
    Some people have this and some don't.

    Here is a thread on the problem at Windows10 forums: Windows 10: Folder View Settings and Desktop Icon Positions Not Saving
