  1. Start menu desktop icon missing when typing


    So after resetting my Windows 10 last night with the option of "Removing Apps and Keeping all Personal Files".

    I noticed after reinstalling my apps, when I type in the name of the app in the search bar "manually", the icon is missing. See screenshot below.The icon is there when I scroll through my start menu.

    So can anyone tell me if there is a solution to fix this problem? I like the icons to be there so I know that I am clicking on the right application.

    Hi Janes,

    Thanks for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    To assist you better, please provide few details.


    • Which all Icons are missing on the Start menu?

    • Are you able to find the Icons, when you click on
      All apps
      in the start menu?

    • What is the make and model of your computer?
    As an initial recommendation, I suggest you to search for the Icons in the search bar, if the icon appears in the search list then
    right click on the icon and select Pin to Start and check if the icons appears in the start menu.

    If the issue persists, Perform System File Checker (sfc) scan and check if it helps.
