Windows 7: Refresh Taskbar Icons

Refresh Taskbar Icons

I have a few Programs Pinned to my taskbar. These Programs reside on an external drive that is not available at boottime.


My problem is, that windows does not display the icons for these programs - instead it shows the defautl placeholder.

How can I refresh the icons so that they are correctly displayed?

Starting the programs or reconnecting the drive doesn't help.

You could try this Icon Cache - Rebuild and if that does not work try unpinning and repinning to task bar.
