    Thanks a lot @Aaron, I've already installed the icons and they look great, I pretty easy in WIN 10 by selecting the Icon and by hitting in the properties button you'll find the "Change icon" option!!, regards

    You guys with blank icons, what OS are you on, and where is the ICO file stored? Windows 8.0/.1 had some odd/crappy behavior with regards to icons that don't live in the EXE.
    I hope to do some extensive testing of @DaveP's solution in various versions and builds of OS's. Mostly because every new version of Windows 10 ***** up/breaks something new.

    It may depend on where you have saved them, as to whether or not they have gone blank at startup, or not. Mine are in the root of C, (in a folder) but not under the User Profiles, or the Program Files, or a network location. No issues with them blanking out, that ive noticed. Either in the start menu or the Taskbar/QuickLaunch. Ive actually been replacing other icons in the same fashion, for a few years now, without issue.

    But its easy to accidentally have them blank out (and stay blanked out) if you have the ICO pathed to a resource that isnt always present.

    I've noticed the icons going blank after installing updates with some software (I'm on Win 8.1). Easiest fix I know of is to unpin it, then re-pin it on the task bar.

    Not me!
    I support about 85 people & I'm not going to remember everybody's desktop layout!

    BTW; Here's a Tip/Trick I use when I sit down at one of those people who've got 95 files on their desktop.
    Click on any icon on the desktop, and then type the first character of the program name. An icon that starts with that character will highlight. Keep typing that character, and Windows will cycle through, for example, all of the "R" icons. Once you get the one you want, hit Enter to run it.

    I usually get the opposite.
    I need to install an update, and they're out of the office with Revit still running & a model open.
    Then I go to close it & find out they haven't SWC'd for an hour.
    Or, they've got a Windows update pending (usually for a couple of days) and I can't install my update until Windows does.

    Then you'll get complaints Revit crashed and they lost work...

    My rule is if you're going to leave your desk for longer than 2 minutes you must sync. If you're leaving the building for even only 10 seconds, sync. I've seen people step outside for a moment and vanished for an hour because a bird pooped on their shirt. Never leave without syncing. That should be common sense.
