    How do I go about doing that?
    What does (Restoring Default Icon Behaviors) do?

    Go to where the address bar is(C:\Windows\System32\GWX) and click GWX(application) if that doesn't work try GXXUX.

    Ran both a administrator nothing happened. Do you think (Restoring Default Icon Behaviors) would mess anything up?

    Took forever to find this finally got the icon back!!

    Got to start open command prompt (run as administrator)
    copy and paste the script below and the icon will show up in seconds


    reg add "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AppCompatFlags\UpgradeExperienceIndicators" /v UpgEx /t REG_SZ /d Green /f
    %SystemRoot%\System32\GWX\GWX.exe /taskLaunch
