Recommended Posts

I just restored my games from my steam back up. And all my games dont have icons in the Start menu. How do I fix this?

was the folder or drive deleted? If so, you may have to re-install from the library page on steam for it to show on your comp. It looks like it's only showing the address of the steam library link right now.(I think) I don't install mine with the icons but if you look at the screen shot,you'll see where steam library is all on drive E, open that and it shows steam apps, open that it shows each game in it's own folder. I have my downloads set to that steam library folder on that drive in my Steam settings. Try opening the Steam Library and seeing if they show as needing to be installed or that they can open.Screenshot_647.thumb.jpg.caac7751cc48152511a8e46eb77ec11c.jpgScreenshot_648.thumb.jpg.bb99ce9c311bc6c02f4f36f406ca19af.jpgScreenshot_649.thumb.jpg.840d2097dc3f10ec76e0b2fc061c2d4a.jpg

They all have URL extensions. Are you sure you restored them correctly? There should be a path to the icon image as well as the .exe

i just restored them using the steam restore/backup function. Everytime I do it this is the result I get.

delete the icons, drag and drop them back.

 

or you can try the verify option which may also fix it.

That is exactly what I was going to suggest trying first.

 

This is a common problem with Windows 10 and 11. Sometimes resetting the Windoze icon cache will correct it. Winaero Tweaker has a couple of features for this that you can try.

I have Winaerotweaker where exactly do I find this feature. I only started using it recently to disable telemetry and stuff so I am still not familiar with it.

 

EDIT Found the reset icon cache feature. Didn't help.
