    How To Widen Open Program Windows in Taskbar

    Hey. Hope I can explain this correctly. I recently performed a clean installation of Windows 10. Previously when I used to open programs on my taskbar (say Firefox) the icon would stretch and the window would be open. Now when I click on the icon, the programs open but the icon stays square rather than stretch to a rectangular shape to indicate the program is open.

    Can someone advise what I can do to change this? Many thanks

    I knew it would be something simple! Thank you ever so much.

    Ps: Sidetrack here but is Edge supposed to be temperamental after a clean installation? I've had four Microsoft edge off.exe critical events in Reliability History and unsure why.
