    Why is my taskbar so big?


    I have the small taskbar buttons options on, and the automatically hid in desktop mode. It used to be only as tall as the small buttons, but it has randomly gotten much taller the last few times I've logged on. It's now over 2 inches tall and the still small icons are just hanging there at the top of the taskbar with tons of space beneath them. Why does this happen randomly, and how can I fix it?Why is my taskbar so big? [​IMG]

    System Icons on taskbar

    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.
