    Video Driver Update: Taskbar Size Messed Up


    Hail: Next issue: I just had a Video driver Update. All went smoothly, except for my taskbar, which is normally on my 2nd monitor, and 5 rows, with the normal part (1 row), Then a Tools Directory (1 row), Program Utility Directory (1 row), Win tools Directory (1 row) and finally a game directory (also 1 row). The Driver Install placed my Task Bar on the prime monitor, in itself, not that a big deal, except... When I drag it to the 2nd monitor where it belongs... it becomes 1 row, which cannot be altered anymore. Thus I lose all rows which are dedicated to directories holding short cuts to programs. How can I undo that silliness please? Thank you very much. Xog. PS: Why does it constantly do this, though I never do a "clean" install for drivers? Isn't it meant to keep all as is when updating drivers (where possible, of course)?

    :)

  4. Video Driver Update: Taskbar Size Messed Up

    Adjust video size to their frames

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your question in the Microsoft Community.

    Please answer these questions to get more clarity on this issue:

    1. Are you aware of any changes made to the PC prior to this issue?
    2. Which application are you using to view the video files?
    3. What is the file format of that video file?
    4. Are those video files saved on the PC locally?
    5. Does this issue occur with all video files?

    This issue can occur if some of the system files are not working as expected. They might be broken or damaged.

    Step 1: Suggest you to use the
    Windows Media Player
    to play the video file to check if that helps.

    Step 2: Further, you may also want to
    update the display driver
    from Device Manager to check if that makes any difference.

    Hope this helps.

    Let us know if you got the help you needed by clicking 'Yes' or 'No'.
