    Lost Tile picture


    I've just done a bit of housekeeping and I seem to have lost the Tile Picture for Google Chrome. It appears when I chose 'all apps' but if I unpin and then re-pin it to start menu it just appears as a black tile.

    Anybody have any ideas how I can get it back?

    Hello Skewett,

    You might see if reinstalling Google Chrome may be able to fix it.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    sorted now thanks. I copied the original start up file to my desktop then just re added it to the tiles and it showed up again.

    Cheers
