Windows 10 Taskbar Issue

EmeraldKiwi

So I recently upgraded to Windows 10, and I really love the way it looks, and many of the new features (I don't actually know what I'm talking about, but I like Windows 10). I have an Xbox One, and the app that allows me to use my PC to do some things on my Xbox is super handy, but on the taskbar at the bottom, it looks like the thumbnail went missing somehow or something.

Here's a screenshot of my taskbar. That white square is the Xbox App, but it doesn't have a graphic. 

 

Can anyone say anything about this?

Does anyone else have this problem? Can I fix it?

 

UPDATE:

I tried restarting Windows Explorer. That didn't work. I'm going to try restarting my PC.

 

Restarting didn't work either.

 

Tried going into %appdata% and deleted iconcache.db then restarted Windows Explorer. That didn't work.

 

Trying to uninstall and reinstall the Xbox App with Powershell, but I'm stuck at the part where I reinstall it. I can't find out how...

No, it's not a clean install. I did the embedded Windows Update path to Windows 10. It was pretty smooth. I also updated my graphics driver. The graphics driver was a clean install though. 

 

EDIT: 

I'm really trying to avoid doing a clean install on my operating system because I don't want to mess with backing up and restoring saves that I have for a bunch of different games.

Would it be the same if I did a clean install of windows 7, and then upgraded? Or would it be better to just do a clean install straight on Windows 10?

You a much better doing a fresh install of Windows 10 -- you can do that with your upgraded version of Windows 7, anyways.

 

Your system's information is backed up to the Microsoft server during the process when you upgraded to Windows 10 initially. As long as you don't replace your motherboard, or any other major component, you will be okay to reinstall Windows 10 as many times as you want.

 

Make a Windows install image onto a DVD or USB Flash drive using the "Creation Media Tool."

https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/software-download/windows10

 

During in the Windows 10 install process, when it asks for your Product Key, there will be an option to "skip" the process.

Once your computer gets a internet connection, it will go to the Microsoft severs, pull all the necessary system information, and activates your fresh install of Windows 10.
