Microsoft Store App Icons Displayed Incorrectly in the Start Menu

Post by TheGuyInTheChair » Tue May 19, 2020 10:42 pm

Hello,

I recently did a clean install of Windows 10 build 1909 64-bit, and then downloaded and installed XnView MP 64-bit successfully. After I installed the program, I registered it to open image files. It now shows up as my default photo viewer under "Settings" -> "Apps" -> "Default Apps", which is what I want.

However, when I open the Start Menu, only the icons for Microsoft Store apps—not non-Microsoft Store software—become XnView MP "PNG" icons. Here are some screenshots that show what I'm talking about:

You can see that in the second image, the application icons for Firefox and AdGuard—software that isn't downloaded from the Microsoft Store—are displayed correctly. Yet the other three are apps downloaded from the Microsoft Store, and their icons aren't displayed correctly! :shock:

How can I fix this problem (without uninstalling XnView MP)?

I think it might have something to do with the file associations. I used the file association tool bundled with XnView MP to associate image files (such as .ico and .png) with XnView MP. Then I also changed the default image viewer in the Windows 10 Settings (Settings -> Apps -> Default Apps) to use XnView MP. That caused the problem for me.

Yes, that's the tool. It's a separate EXE in the program installation directory. I used that tool, then changed the default image viewer (in Windows 10 Settings) to XnView MP. That part is a good thing; I want to use XnView MP as my default image viewer. But I also don't want the Start Menu icons to have a default "PNG" icon from XnView MP.
