    Store Apps: No small icons (just rectangles)


    Hi,

    wherever a Windows Store app shows a small icon (in search and on the "All Apps" screen), the actual icon is missing:

    Click image for larger version

    The larger icons on the actual start screen show up. Re-installing the apps does not help, and the icons of desktop apps show up.

    What can I do to fix this issue?

    Best,
    Felix

    Unluckily, nothing that applies to my situation did help.
    (I'm not going to refresh my PC.)

    No corruption found in that?

    Quite honestly I've never seen this before, especially when desktop apps icons show. Weird indeed.

    Have you made changes to your system lately? new app(s) or anything?

    Did you try a Restore Point?
