    Windows 10 turned white and highlighting icons


    It seems like sort of accessibility mode. But I can't figure out how to turn it off.
    Windows 10 became white: white background, white taskbar, and when you hover over the icons in the taskbar it highlights them in blue.

    What is it?

    Thanks

    :)

    Making the taskbar Edge icon white

    Wow. Thank you so much for taking the time to make a video tutorial. A lot of steps to change the icon color but worth it to me.

    If I heard you correctly, this will reset every time Edge updates?

    Windows 10 White Icons

    After the last update my icons turned white and I can't get them back. The only icons that appear new icons like Edge, Microsoft Store, Microsoft Mail and Snip & Sketch. Chrome, Adobe Reader DC, File Explorer and so on, show a white page symbol. Even if
    I go to file properties and change the icon (even from another file) still same white page.

    I tried a few things, including:

    • going to %localappdata% and deleting IconCache.db, followed by a restart
    • ran SFC Scan
    • DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth
    No change. All users have the same problem.

    This is very annoying and should be very basic.

  4. Windows 10 turned white and highlighting icons

    Windows 10 tiles are blank / white with no thumbnail icons!

    Hi All

    Running Windows 10 operating system... I have the same issue but on my desktop and Taskbar at the bottom of the screen... White Box Icon... If I click the start it shows the correct icon but if I open it from there it shows white on the task bar...

    Tried this:

    Method 1: You may also try to enable or disable the thumbnail preview using group policy editor.

    Follow the steps to do so:

    • Press Windows and R key together to open the run box.
    • Type “gpedit.msc” in the box and hit Enter.
    • Now, navigate to User Configuration, Administrative Templates, and Start Menu and Taskbar in left pan of Group Policy Editor.
    • Locate “Turn off Taskbar Thumbnails” in right pane of Group policy editor and double click on it.
    • Select Disable and click on Apply and then on OK.
    • Check if you are able to view the images.
    But computer said no file found...
