    Word icons missing from Word docs in Office 2019


    1.New ThinkPad X1 Carbon with Windows 10
    2.Installed Office 2010 - everything fine
    3.Installed Office 2019 still all good
    4.Uninstalled Word and Excel 2010 - no problems
    5.After some weeks Office 2019 turned into Office 2016 and Word docs became generic plain icons but still opened with Word
    6.Tried every solution I could find in the internet including tweaking the registry
    7.Removed Office 2010 using Programs and Features
    8.Everything was fixed- Office 2019 back and Word icons back - Thank you Steve from this forum.
    9.Then after just a couple of days I got a Windows 10 update and Word icons on Word docs disappeared again and as well Excel file icons and Office start menu icons disappeared except for Skype and one other (Outlook?)
    10.An Office online repair got the Start Menu icons and the Excel files ones back but not the Word doc icons
    11.Downloaded the Office removal tool and totally removed Office 2019
    12.Reinstalled 2019 and no Word Doc icons as well as no more OneNote program even though one note files on desktop did have OneNote icons
    13.Downloaded OneNote from Microsoft Store
    14.Everything seems to be working now but still no Word icons on docs, just plain generic ones. But they do open in Word
    15.I am relatively new to Windows 10 and it says I cannot undo the updates because they are more than 10 days old which does not even seem to be true.

    Word icon missing from all docs in Office 2019 Pro Plus

    I have Windows 10, 2004 19041.502. I'm new with windows 10 and I installed my old Office 2010. I then installed Office 2019. I removed the old Word and Excel and left the rest of 2010 on the laptop for now. At some point later for unknown reason, my 2019 became Office 2016. I followed the instructions to repair both online and offline many times and I could could not get 2019 back. But also the Word icon disappeared from all my word docs both on the desktop and in folders. Somehow I finally got Office 2019 back although the Onenote icon has 2016 next to it. No big deal. But what is driving me absolutely insane is that I cannot get the 2019 Word icon, or any Word icon to replace these generic blank icons. I have googled for a week and tried all the repairs, even going into the registry but all to no avail. Anyone know how to fix this? I have seen in my searches that other people have the same problem with the Word icon. My Office is MS Office Pro Plus 2019

    Word icon missing from all docs in Office 2019 Pro Plus

    Fantastic Steve! I cannot thank you enough after this has driven me crazy for over a week, maybe even two weeks. I had thought of uninstalling as an absolute last resort. I wanted to keep some of the 2010 programs that are not included in 2019 and I had already uninstalled Word and Excel 2010 (unless it really just hides them. In any case, as soon as I completely uninstalled Office 2010 from Control Panel, all of my Word files magically had the 2019 icons and nothing further such as uninstalling 2019 was necessary. Even the Onenote icon on the start menu that had "2016" next to it no longer has the 2016. Why didn't I come ere first......all that Googling, Youtube videos, messing with the Registry etc, etc. Geeze!
