    Taskbar icon turns to white sheets of paper upon being pinned to the taskbar


    I have an app running in Windows 10 as an administrator. The icon is the app's (sysinternals' Process Explorer) usual icon. When I pin it to the taskbar, it turns to white sheets of paper. When I unpin it, it turns back to normal. Please advise how to pin it and keep the usual icon. I completely reset windows last week and did not have this issue at that time. Thanks in advance!

    :)

  2. Icons have turned white sheets

    Hello Everyone,

    Today I tried to connect my ps3 to my windows 10 Desktop and a message said that IP wasn't correctly managed... So I used the internal diagnostic tool on the network, and it said there was an IP error... I looked across the web and found a fix: I uninstalled
    and reinstalled network drivers... but after rebooting, every icon became a black sheet (Not everyone actually), like in the image (Note that just Edge, store and explorer, the third are pinned to taskbar)... both on taskbar and start screen (some in the list,
    others become sheets when pinned to start... They become white even when I open the app frome the directory. I tried deleting the icon cache, but it didn't work... What shall I do to fix?

    System Icons on taskbar

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Communities.

    Are you referring to the clock system icon on the taskbar?

    If so, I suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below:


    • Click on the search bar on the taskbar.

    • Type system icons.

    • Under Turn System Icons ON or OFF, turn On the Clock and check with the issue.

    Hope it helps.

    it wasn't my first time I've encountered this, It happened same thing on every updates. So knew I'd need to rebuild icon and thumbnail cache once again so I following this steps...

    After Creators Update 2 thumbnails cache keeps auto-deleting Solved - Windows 10 Forums

    After few restart, it did not solve my issues issues, It did not rebuild cache but went for worst. Now I got I got a blank icon/thumbnails on taskbar (left of screen) and it seem to happen only on windows store app (i.e. calendar, mail, photo previewer and etc..) not the third party programs.

    I also have issues with images (almost most image format) showing paper white thumbnails, instead of previewer or default icon.

    I cannot fathom how this happen. I've spend hours goggling for solution, done many different methods on rebuilding icon and reboot pc 50+ times. Went through recovery and rollback version. sfc /scannow DISM. virus screening, disk cleaning and etc none of it detect my issues and its driving me nuts.
    Instead of having to reset windows and reinstall many of 3rd parties program again I was hoping there are solution. Would anyone by any chance know what the issues are? Thanks in advance.
