  2. Windows Taskbar displays icons incorrectly

    Hello!

    After a while of being on (5 days, broken up by hibernation) the taskbar starts to do weird things, here's some examples:
    First symptom (Telegram is showing behind the start menu):

    Then it starts to evolve

    I don't have two instances of Discord, Taiga, or Syncplay running. It's just showing two.
    Nothing is reported as even occuring in Event Viewer at that time. It's all rather confusing.

    I currently use OpenShell. Not sure if that could be causing it. A restart ususally fixes it for a while. This only occurs on my secondary monitor, not my primary. And changing the taskbar settings seems to fix it until I get a notification and click the icon again. Restarting explorer.exe is a temporary fix.

    If you need any more information, feel free to ask!

    Font and Icon size

    Hi Vickie,

    It's possible that some settings were accidentally changed, affecting your icons and font size. We'd like to learn more about your concern so that we could provide the proper resolution. We just have a few questions for you:

    • Which build version of Windows 10 is on your computer? To check, click
      Start
      , type winver, and press Enter. For example, 14393.1066.
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    As initial recommendation, we suggest following these steps to change the icon size:

    • Right-click on an empty space on your desktop.
    • Select View.
    • Choose Medium icons or Small icons, whichever you prefer more.

    Additionally, you can change the display size of texts and other items by following these steps:

    • Right-click on an empty space on your desktop.
    • Click Display settings.
    • Under Change the size of text, apps, and other items, drag the slider over to 100%.
    • If the slider is already on 100%, click Advanced display settings.
    • Under Resolution, choose the Recommended option from the drop-down choices.

    We'll wait for your response to our questions and the results of the initial troubleshooting.

    System Icons on taskbar

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Communities.

    Are you referring to the clock system icon on the taskbar?

    If so, I suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below:


    • Click on the search bar on the taskbar.

    • Type system icons.

    • Under Turn System Icons ON or OFF, turn On the Clock and check with the issue.

    Hope it helps.
