    W10-64 taskbar does not retain setting

    When I unlock the task bar, then raise its height a notch, then lock it again, .. on the next boot, it is at the default height. Any help would be appreciated in advance.

    Did you add a toolbar or other item to the second row?
    If you don't, it will default back to the default height.

    No Sir. Not to my knowledge. All I do is unlock, raise the height, and relock. I just tried this:

    Method 3: Re-registering the TaskbarIf the issue resurfaces, then try this method to fix it using Windows Powershell. Powershell is a command-line tool to configure system settings and automate Windows tasks.First, create a system restore point and then follow these steps to use Windows Powershell for fixing taskbar issues:1. Press Windows Key on your keyboard and type in powershell. Right-click Windows Powershell (Desktop App) and select Run as administrator. Select Yes in the UAC window that pops up.2. Now paste the following command, as suggested in Answers, in the PowerShell window and hit Enter:

    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register $($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml}

    3. Once the command is executed successfully, navigate to the following directory in Explorer where name is your Account Username. Make sure you have enabled showing of hidden items in Explorer.


    4. Scroll down to locate the folder named TileDataLayer and delete this folder.

    If you are unable to delete this folder, Run services.msc to open the Services Manager, scroll down to Tile Data model server service and stop it. Now try to delete the folder again.

    5. Now check if your taskbar is working as expected.
    But no fix. Also, the powershell routine resulted in some errors.
