  1. Startup Menu tile icon missing


    Tile of UWP apps does not show icon in startup menu, the tile is blank and just display background colors. Name of app could be displayed only when in medium size.


    Other informations:

    1. Only newly installed UWP apps have this problem.

    2. Before the problem shows up, I installed Tile Genie to personalize my startup menu, which can create blank tiles with specified images and add them directly to the startup menu. Tile Genie is a UWP app. I DON'T KNOW WHETHER IT IS THE CULPRIT.

    3. I also used "copy /b *.lnk +,," command to create personalized tile for a third party software.


    System info:

    Windows 10 pro 1903.


    What I have tried:

    1. bat script but did not work.

    @echo off

    taskkill /f /im explorer.exe

    taskkill /f /im shellexperiencehost.exe

    timeout /t 3 /NOBREAK > nul

    del %localappdata%\Packages\Microsoft.Windows.ShellExperienceHost_cw5n1h2txyewy\TempState\* /q

    timeout /t 2 /NOBREAK > nul

    start explorer

    @echo on


    2. System File Scan

    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth

    DISM.exe /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    First command told me nothing to fix. The second stuck at 100% and I closed it after an hour. It did not work.


    3. reset UWP apps, did not work.

    Really need help! Thanks!

    :)

  3. Start menu tiles are missing their icons

    On Windows 10, the tiles in the Start menu for a few apps are missing their icons, as shown in this image:

    Startup Menu tile icon missing fa754192-00cf-407c-afbb-4c91efe5e5cf.png

    Sometimes an app tile may be missing altogether.
    Is there a way to get the icons back?

    Startup Menu tile icon missing

    Windows 10 Start menu tiles (icons) don't move / Pin to start is missing

    I am on an Alienware 17R4, running Win 10 Pro x64, Ver - 1803, Build 17134.799, and I have the following issues with the "Windows 10 Start Menu Tiles" (Icons).

    1. Rearrangement of Tiles / Icons are not possible anymore through "Drag and Drop".
    2. Right Click (RC) Option to Resize any Tiles is missing, and the only RC option there is the "More" option.
    3. "Pin to Start Menu" Option is mission on the Right Click Option of other shortcut icons in the start menu's Default Shortcut List. So can't make tiles of installed app's start menu shortcut.
    4. "Pin to Start Menu" Option is there on applications (programs/exe's) in Windows Explorer. So can make new tiles in the start menu like this, but the new tiles are created in Med size, and lacks the above mentioned right click options to resize, apart from the option "More", so the tiles can't be resized, moved / rearranged.

    These are the steps I have taken so far to fix the issue.

    1. Checked Group Policies -> User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Start Menu and Taskbar

      a) Prevent changes to Taskbar and Start Menu Settings = Not Configured

      b) Start Layout = Not Configured
    2. Windows Registry = Made sure all start menu related entries are correctly aligned to where it's supposed to be.
    3. Created a new user account = still the icons won't move and have the above mentioned issue.
    4. Ran SFC = It can't find any issue with my system's integrity.

    OS and all system drivers, including both the display drivers (Intel and nVidia, for both the GPU's) are up to date with Dell's latest driver releases.

    Kindly help resolve this issue.
    Thanks in advance.
