    Taskbar settings issue

    Hi guys!

    I hope that everyone is well and safe. I have an issue with my taskbar size not staying set as far as the number of rows that are visible. I like it set for two rows of small icons of which I have many but every time I shut my laptop down and then power it up, the taskbar is back to the default single row. Using the "Lock the taskbar" feature has no effect on it.

    Is there a way to fix this or is it just a W10 Pro glitch that can't be fixed? Thanks in advance for any help on this.

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.
