  1. Why does my Task Manager look weird and the taskbar icons look SD quality


    As shown in this image the icons look like they've been compressed to a smaller state that it looks bad, and the color contrasting of the task manager UI looks unintentional, I tried changing from dark mode to light mode but still the same outcome. I recently just updated to 20H2

    1. Press Ctrl + Alt + Del, then select Task Manager.

    2. On the Task Manager window, click on More Details at the bottom left if it doesn't shows the
    Processes tab.

    3. Scroll down the list of the Windows processes and locate Windows Explorer and right-click on it and select

    battery icon on task bar

    Hi Pete,

    Windows 10 has a feature to personalize your task bar icons. To retrieve the missing battery icon on your taskbar, kindly follow the steps below:

    • Right click on the taskbar and select Settings.
    • Under Notification Area, click Turn system icons on or off.
    • Look for Power and toggle Power to On. Your battery icon should appear in the system tray again.

    Let us know if this worked.

    Why does my Task Manager look weird and the taskbar icons look SD quality

    Windows 10 Taskbar icons missing/ not responding!

    Hello Pasindu,

    Windows 10 may have encountered a system file corruption that caused this taskbar issue. For us to assist you with this, kindly answer the following questions:

    • Have you made any recent changes to your computer prior to this issue?
    • What is the current build and version of your Windows 10? To check, type in
      winver on the search bar and press Enter.

    Meanwhile, we suggest that restart the Windows Explorer.exe to refresh your taskbar functionality by following the steps below:

    • Open Task Manager
      by right clicking the taskbar.
    • Click More details at the bottom to expand the Task Manager window.
    • Under the Processes tab, look for Windows Explorer.
    • After selecting the Windows Explorer, click the Restart
      button at the bottom.
    • It may take a few seconds and things like your taskbar and Start menu may disappear momentarily, but when it restarts, things should behave better and you can exit Task Manager.

    We'll be waiting for your reply.
