windows 8 apps icons not showing
Today, while going through the latest updates on my secondary Windows 8 laptop, I realized that there were some issues with the apps icons. As you can see for yourself in the above screenshots, the thumbnails for certain apps is missing, which isn’t necessarily a big issue, but if it were to happen to even more apps, or to all of them, then we must agree that it would’ve looked kind of ugly, isn’t it so?

Annoying issue with apps’ icons in the Windows Store

What I must say, however, is that my “old” laptop hasn’t been yet updated to the latest Windows Store look, so this could be a potential problem. Have you experienced a similar problem, by any chance? And if so, what have you done to solve it? My advice is to make sure you have deployed the latest update which brings a new and much needed visual revamp to the Windows 8 Store, as that might prove to be quite helpful.
