[Q] VSCode icon in task bar(or Desktop) is blank
1) Open Windows Explorer, go to %userprofile%\AppData\Local (Type %appdata% in Explorer), delete IconCache.db
(This file is hidden, so it you don't see it, you will need to adjust your Windows Explorer settings to show hidden files.)
2) Open Task Manager, go to Processes tab, highlight explorer.exe, and click End Process.
3) Your desktop will "disappear." Still in Task Manger, select File > New Task (Run...), type explorer.exe, and click OK.
Your desktop should reappear, with the previously missing icons.
