    Windows 10 blank taskbar icons


    I expect after a bit of housekeeping clearing drive space using disk cleaner ive lost most default icons from taskbar. Might have been just bad timing but was the last thing I remember doing to try get 2004 to install.

    Windows 10 blank taskbar icons taskbar.png


    Missing icon next to command is the Calculator but any system setting / Help / Dell (its a Dell laptop) config are all missing.
    Oddly icon looks ok from start menu

    OS : Windows 10 Pro 1909 different issue im not concerned about atm 2004 will not install but stops me from trying to upgrade out of this problem

    Ive tried everything found online but nothing seems to help so hoping someone here seen this before.

    Things tried :
    deleted > %localappdata%\AppData\Local\IconCache.db
    deleted > %localappdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Explorer\icon & thumb cache files
    sfc /scannow (did not find anything)
    DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth (no help either)
    Creating shortcut / changing icon also didnt work as a fudge

    At this point I ran out of things to try as OS re install is not an option (remote working + company laptop)

    Thanks in advance

    :)
