  • The Calculator and Alarms are determined by the icon of the application itself (i.e. Microsoft). However, the icon being a folder instead of the Battle.net icon is either caused by the fact it's a folder or the icon cache is corrupt. So what exactly is your question about the two default UWP application's icons? Do you have a folder pinned to your start menu for Battle.net. You should edit your question instead of submitting any commentary answering these basic necessary questions.
