Word 'W' icon missing (Office 2016)

  Gordon Freeman 11:10 09 May 2019

Anyone else had this, or know how to resolve this query?

Word documents (docx) either in a folder listing, or if on desktop, no longer have the small 'W' icon on them. Only seems to have happened since a previous/recent update to office 2016 which changed word, excel, ppt & outlook icons generally, but it's annoying me a bit. Other versions (97-2003) still have their icon. Thanks.

I have Office 2016 Pro Plus and I also had an Office update on 4th May and the icons now look different but they are complete with the 'W' on 'Word' icons and 'X' on Excel icons. Icons are peculiar in that they sometimes change without user input so maybe wait and see if a future update corrects matters. I know little things can be annoying sometimes but as long as everything works then carry on.

Uninstalled and re-installed, seems to have sorted it ken. Cheers.
