I just turned on my Windows 10 PC today and found that all my Desktop & Program Icons gone.

The programs and shortcuts still work. But the icon photos are gone. All that you see it the icon text.
I attached a desktop pic so you can see. The taskbar icon has also changed somewhat. The program icons
are now generic. In the screenshot I have two different browsers and paint open.

All other folder icons are gone. All files show as text, jpg, png,text etc.

The only change I have done to my computer was a few days ago when a Windows 10 update caused the Icon arrows to appear.
So I used Ultimate Windows Tweaker 4.2.2 to remove them. They were fine after I made that change. My computer was fine
until now.

Fixed with renamed "Shell Icons" to "Shell IconsX" then rebooted.

maybe the icon cache is corrupt: ... windows-10

it looks like there is a newer version of UWT: ... windows-10

Worth a try.

We hate rut, but we fear change.
