    Weird screen taskbar icon issue since latest update


    Hi, I have a bit of a weird issue since the latest Win10 update. I have 6 screens. The bottom middle one is my primary. Win key opens up the start menu fine on the primary screen. However, my "pinned" apps now show on the top right screen! They used to show (correctly) on the primary. Please see attached screenshot Is this a known bug? Any way around it? Win 10, ver 19043.1110 Thanks! Andy

    :)

    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.

  3. Weird Interlacing and Taskbar location issues with driver release 335.25

    Hey guys, been having this weird issues going on with my main gaming PC, the system specs are on the tab to the right of this post, and these issues started happening with the 33X release of the Nvidia drivers.

    First of all, every time I boot my PC, the right screen shows this weird vertical interlacing, like it's displaying at half vertical resolution or less, compared the the other two screens:


    Weird screen taskbar icon issue since latest update 20140330_094811.jpg


    I've tried different DVI cables, changing one monitor for another, moving the bottom Titan card to the top and connecting to a different DVI output, all to no avail, this is entirely a software issue and I've tried to capture a screenshot of it but when I do the screen looks normal, I had to use my cell camera to capture this picture.

    The only way to fix it is by entering the Nvidia Control Panel, and clicking on the Configure button found under "Span displays with Surround", then it allows me to reset the display driver and the screen goes back to normal.

    This happens only to the right panel, no matter what monitor or video card or DVI connector I use.

    The second issue is much less intrusive, but still annoying. On boot my Taskbar is floating above the bottom of the center screen and it messes the bottom row of icons on my desktop:

    I can fix this very easily by clicking on the start button and the taskbar immediately resets back to its normal position, but I have to move those icons back up on my desktop so they're not covered by the taskbar.

    All these issues started happening when I installed the 33X.XX drivers, and all releases on these series cause the same problems on this particular rig, I've googled for solutions to no avail, and was wondering if any of you guys on multiple screens and Nvidia cards had any input or suggestions.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated! *Toast :toast:
