How To Rebuild Icon Cache After Clean Install

How I rebuild my icon cache?

Rebuild / Refresh Start Menu Icons On Tiles?

Feb 10, 2016

I would like to refresh start menu icons in Windows 10 and haven't been able to find any info about it. These is the rebuild icon cache thread but that method works only for the desktop and explorer icons - not for the start menu icons (tiles).

I have many portable programs that I run off my USB stick and I've placed tiles for them in my start menu. Most often there are not problems with them and even if I start Windows without the stick the icons are intact. However, from time to time (after some windows updates or unexpected system shut down) the icon cache gets wiped out and the icons are gone - I can see the tiles with some generic icon instead of the programs' icons. I would like to clear this cache so that Windows rebuilds the icons when my USB stick is inserted.

So far I have discovered that resizing the tiles refreshes the icon as well - so this is at least some partial workaround - not ideal because I have to do it one by one for each tile. Can I refresh all the tiles in one go?

Main SDD Won't Boot Without Secondary HDD

Aug 12, 2015

I wanted to make an image of my machine since upgrading to Windows 10 and saw it kept on including my secondary drive (which has over 600 gigs of movies). I am not able to uncheck it.

I figured what the hell and disconnected the drive.My box will not boot without the drive!

I just built this machine back in December and I used a 500GB SSD for my main drive, while I have 2 regular HDD's for storage and movies.

I turned off, "hide protected operating system files" and found the folders "Boot, Recovery, System Volume information and $Recycle Bin" all showing up!

how this drive got dragged into the install, but I certainly do not want my main drive depending on it to boot.

I don't want to change ownership of the files and delete then manually either since I have a strong feeling it will kill my system.

how to go about "unlinking" these 2 drives?

Autoplay Not Working In Main Profile

Aug 29, 2015

I recently did the free upgrade from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 on my desktop. Everything went smoothly, except for the fact that Autoplay doesn't want to work anymore. I can get it to come up with the notification in the Action Center when I plugged a USB device in, but clicking the actual device name just gets rid of it from the list, and nothing else happens.

The weird thing is that this only happens in my main profile on my PC. I created a new profile recently (in addition to my main one), and Autoplay works flawlessly there. Is there some setting that got messed up for me during the upgrade?

Forcing A Program To Open On Second Monitor Rather Than The Main

Aug 8, 2015

I have my TV connected to HDMI and a small, old monitor connected to VGA on a Radeon 4600 video card. I have Kodi (multimedia player) set to open full screen when the default user account logs in and it does so on the main monitor which is my TV. I have the smaller, older monitor set up so I can still use the computer when someone is watching a movie on the TV. I have multi-monitor set to extend the desktop.

But my problem is when I open a program it wants to default to opening on the main monitor and when I open a program from the second monitor, it opens behind Kodi on the main monitor (and I have to click and drag it over to the second monitor) - so I would like to switch the old VGA monitor to be the main monitor and the TV to be the second.

Is there a way I can force Kodi to open and stay on the second monitor once I make my TV the second monitor?

Now neither screen shows a display, both blank.

Computer Can't Boot / Can't Seem To Read Main Partition

Dec 13, 2015

My computer froze during a Windows update, and I had to force a shut down, which really messed up my computer.

My computer was stuck in a boot loop, so I attempted to reinstall windows 10 onto it. At around 3% it crashed again, and since then has been really messed up.

If it tries to boot normally, it no longer gets stuck in a boot loop, but now just instantly crashes to blue screen, saying a required device can't be accessed (error 0xc000000f).

I tried to boot into the windows 10 install disk to try and run chkdsk or attempt other recovery tasks, but it crashes after a few seconds of being on the menu, saying to search for FAT FILE SYSTEM to try and fix the error.

I downloaded gparted onto a USB and ran it. It gave me this error: [URL]

Display On Main Monitor Was Out Of Bounds (1920x1080)

Aug 12, 2015

Today I upgraded to windows 10, and the first thing I noticed was that the display on my main monitor was out of bounds(1920x1080 btw). I know the task-bar and icons on the desktop are there, but they aren't in the frame of the monitor. My other display is flawless, but the main one isn't. I turned down the refresh rate from 60 to 30 on the main monitor, and that let me see everything on my desktop, however, there is a flicker when I go over stuff. Also, I feel that there is somewhat of an input lag with the mouse.

Accounts :: Hidden Administrator Cannot See Main Local Account

Feb 10, 2016

For one reason or another I managed to delete administrator privileges for my one local account. After several hours messing about I have managed to activate the hidden Administrator - but I am finding that this Administrator is not working.

1. It cannot see my main local user account. It does not list it at all in User Accounts, so I cannot change any settings etc. Similarly, when I open User Accounts with my main account, it cannot see the Administrator, or the new account I created (see below)

2. When I access User Accounts using "netplwiz" it sees my main account but will not highlight it (or any other account). It is stuck on Administrator.

3. It will not create a new account. When I use it to access Accounts and try to add a new user the cursor spins and nothing happens.

4. I added a new user (with administrator privileges) using the command prompt - this was successful, but it bumped my main account off the login page, and it doesn't acknowledge it on the dropdown list with the start menu. (Yet when I restarted it took me straight in to my main account.)

Focus Stays On Main Window - Warning Dialogs Hidden In Background

Aug 10, 2015

For instance: Edge downloads a program which has a setup dialog. On hitting run, the setup dialog appears on the taskbar, but Edge remains in front. Once you bring the setup screen is in focus, you don't realise that it will not respond because, again, behind Edge, another dialog has opened saying "another instance of setup is already running".

This behavior seems to happen with other error messages, and property sheets etc. which ought to be brought to front, but open in the background.

what is the resolution to it?

OneDrive Icon On Taskbar Instead Of Hidden Icon

Aug 3, 2015

Currently, my OneDrive icon is sitting in the 'hidden icons' section. I have seen pictures of the icon sitting on the taskbar next to Edge, the store, and all the other taskbar icons... how do you get that icon on the taskbar? I have tried all the normal ways I can think of (click and drag onto taskbar, going into taskbar settings, etc) but I can't get it to be removed from the hidden icons area.
