Happy Thanksgiving weekend! I've been struggling with the problem on a couple different systems for a while now. I've tried troubleshooting it but have not found a resolution. Basically, all the apps installed from the Microsoft Store have a photo icon when using the search bar on the taskbar. They are fine everywhere else. Any ideas?
By default, Windows will use the index when searching to give you faster search results. The search index only includes your selected locations. These locations can be filtered for what file types, file properties, and file contents you want yo be indexed. Here are the steps that you can follow to rebuild search index in Windows 10:
Open the Control Panel (icons view), click/tap on the Indexing Options icon, and close the Control Panel.
Click/tap on the Advanced button.
In the Index Settings tab, click/tap on the Rebuild button under Troubleshooting.
Thanks for the ideas. It is all normal on the Administrator user...
The problem does not just happen with Paint 3D or 3D Viewer though, it is every app from the Microsoft Store. Anything that I installed via an installer displays normally in the search. This system has a fresh install of W10 from about 9 days ago now with a freshly created bootable media from the W10 Media Creation Tool. At first everything was fine, but after a day or two it changed. Essentially the same thing happens with every PC that I use my Microsoft login for.
I also tried deleting C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\IconCache.db and ran a sfc /scannow... Not sure why, but Paint 3D is displaying normally, but nothing else is.
