  1. Steam Icons blank on desktop after fresh windows 10 re-install.


    All steam icons on desktop are blank after reinstalling windows 10 So I got a new mobo and cpu and reinstalled my windows. I have 6 total drives and obviously the steam file on the C: drive got deleted during the reinstall. I reinstalled Steam and when I go to put shortcuts on my desktop from steam, they are all blank white pages. I've noticed that my steam/steam/game folder has no icons in there. I've checked to make sure that .url files are defaulted to "internet browser" I've rebuilt my icon cache for windows 10 multiple times and no luck. Also rebooted after the rebuilds. Also I have verified my local files in steam for games and that doesn't work either. I have a lot of games and don't want to have to go through manually editing all of the icons on the desktop. Windows 10 OS Build 19041.985

    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

    Weird desktop icon behaviour on Steam

    Yes, they are; however, when I right click on the "blue sphere" icon to change it and browse to the corresponding folder inside the Steam folder, it lets me go through all the steps, but the blue sphere remains. *Confused Steam Icons blank on desktop after fresh windows 10 re-install. :confused:
