Opera start icon gone after windows 10 update service pack 1

  • Only opera. I've read in articles that people had problems with windows 10 icons, when icons looked like white paper shit on some background, not like just white square.

  • Omg, "paper sheet", i'm not english speaking.

  • "Is the problem apparent with Opera in specific, or have you noticed others programs with a blank icon? Unfortunately, we do not have any Windows 10 PCs deployed here."

    It is only with Opera.

  • I had that issue. Got the icon to appear by removing from Start, going to the Opera program folder, right clicked the Opera application file from there, selected "Pin to Start", and the icon was back.

  • did not work for me 😞

  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Opera\34.0.2036.50\opera.exe <<< pin this to start , not the launcher

  • C:\Program Files (x86)\Opera\34.0.2036.50\opera.exe <<< pin this to start , not the launcher

    Doing this you will have to recreate the shortcut on every Opera update.

  • The error is in the launcher.visualelementsmanifest.xml.

    The colors and icons are set there, but the file names for the icons are not correct.

    Square150x150Logo = "Assets \ 150x150Logo.png"
    Square70x70Logo = "Assets \ 70x70Logo.png"

    150x150Logo.png and 70x70Logo.png do not exist, only additional versions for different scales and contrast.

    I have created a copy of the 2 different sizes, each of the highest scaled version. These were then renamed, so that they will be found.
    then I change only once the size of the tile and the icon was displayed.

  • Right click on opera.exe and select "pin to start" (This worked for me).

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Opera\34.0.2036.50 (or highest number folder) \opera.exe <<< pin this to start , not the launcher

  • matzex is absolutely right. I just had to modify "C:\Program Files (x86)\Opera\launcher.visualelementsmanifest.xml" file.
    Changed 150x150Logo.png and 70x70Logo.png entries to 150x150Logo.scale-100.png and 70x70Logo.scale-100.png accordingly
