Pinned Apps icons invisible from taskbar in Windows 10 v1803

I have already pinned some icons to my taskbar in Windows 10 on my Surface Pro 3. After I install the recent update version v1803 and click any one to open it, they become invisible and there are only the space with the line. That takes effect with the calculator, Edge borwser, and settings apps. I run the sfc and DISM commands but nothing works. I could not find a way to restore the icons. How can I resolve the problem?

I create a new account and the icons appear in the taskbar, so it is imply a corrupted user profile. I tyr to move my files from the corrupted user profile to the new one. However, within the User Profiles, the copy option is grayed out.
