  1. Taskbar toolbar Icons


    Ever since I think windows 98, I have had a particular setup on Windows and I am so used to it that I really don't want to change it.

    I recently bought a Dell laptop and upgraded it to Windows 10 Pro

    The Setup I have is that I have the task bar on auto-hide on the left side of the screen and on the task bar I have separated into toolbars and have all my most used applications in these various groups. This has always worked fine for me until now. now some of the Icons Not all of them do not show the actual icon but a generic one so I have about 17 icons f****ng the same, which kind of defeats the object.

    Here is a screen show of my side bar so you can see what I mean.

    Any help with this would be much appreciated as just got a new laptop and this has kind f spoiled it for me.

    Thank you Taskbar toolbar Icons 975756c8-0316-4887-bbb2-c16f17eb0c79?upload=true.png

    System Icons on taskbar


    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.
  3. Taskbar changes height when toolbars have icons set to "Large"

    There has been an issue with the Windows taskbar which drives me crazy. It has been a problem since Windows XP and the "skinning" of the underlying user interface controls. It still persists in Windows 10.

    When using a Toolbar on the Taskbar and the icon size is set to "small", the clickable targets are smaller than the vertical height of the taskbar. No problem, right? Either make the taskbar icon set to "small" as well and the clickable target area matches.

    But what if I like the large buttons to click on? Setting the Toolbar (not taskbar!) icons to Large causes the taskbar vertical height to increase. This is fine for the Toolbar, but the application icons in the Taskbar now have an unclickable space beneath
    them. See image below (not my image... found online when trying to find a solution to this.)

    This doesn't happen in Windows 7 when using the "Windows Classic" scheme... so the problem must derive from the Aero skinning of the taskbar.

    To recreate:

    • Right click on the taskbar and Unlock it.
    • Ensure taskbar is set to "large icons" mode from Taskbar properties dialog box.
    • Right click an empty area of the taskbar and create a new Toolbar.
    • Right click on the label of the toolbar and choose View > Large Icons
    This wouldn't necessarily be an issue if the clickable region of the Application Icons was the full vertical height of the visible taskbar. It also wouldn't be an issue if the Toolbar "Large Icons" setting didn't have icons bigger than the Application Icons.

    If there is a registry hack or other solution PLEASE let me know! I have had this problem with Toolbars since Windows XP, and the Toolbars are essential to my workflow.
