By default, Windows 10 has Live Tile support for Universal (Store) apps installed on your PC. When you pin such an app to the Start menu, its Live Tile will show dynamic content like news, weather forecast, images and so on. You might want to reset the Live Tile cache if some tiles display invalid contents. Here is how to clear the Live Tile cache in Windows 10.
Windows 10 has two values in the Registry which can be used to reset the Live Tile cache. They are located under the following key:
Both values are of the type 32-bit DWORD.
ResetCache - When it is equal to 1, File Explorer resets the cache for all tiles.
ResetCacheCount - Stores how many times the Live Tile cache has been reset.
Here is how to use them.
To clear Live Tile Cache in Windows 10, do the following.
Open Registry Editor and navigate to the following Registry key:
Tip: You can access any desired Registry key with one click.
See the ResetCacheCount value. In my case, the Live Tile cache was reset only once.
To reset the cache, create a new 32-bit DWORD value ResetCache. Note: Even if you are running 64-bit Windows, you still need to use a 32-bit DWORD as the value type.
Set its value data to 1.
This will reset the Live Tile cache immediately. The ResetCacheCount value will be increased. The ResetCache value will be set to 0.
