    Taskbar misbehavior - icons out of horizontal alignment


    My taskbar vanished, got it back by pulling it back up, but now it has this strange misbehavior:


    Taskbar misbehavior - icons out of horizontal alignment [​IMG]


    Notice that the three system icons at the far left are at a lower horizontal level than the icons to their right, and are partly cut off at the bottom of the screen. Likewise, some of the icons on the far right are lower, and are cut off.

    If I expand the taskbar up, it's as if the icons are on separate lines, like this:

    Rebooting doesn't help. Removing and replacing my added Quick Start toolbar doesn't help. Locking/unlocking the taskbar doesn't help.

    Is there a way to get all the toolbar icons back in horizontal alignment and not cut off? Thanks for any help!

  3. Some (not all) of the icons in the task bar are not centre aligned when the task bar is set to the left of the screen

    I have moved the windows 10 task bar from the bottom of the screen to the left but unfortunately this breaks the centre alignment of some icons. Where as all icons on the menu were vertically aligned when the task bar was horizontal on the bottom of the
    screen only some of the icons horizontally align when the taskbar is vertical at the left of the screen.

    Is there any way to make all the icons centre align?

    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.
