    Video Driver Update: Taskbar Size Messed Up


    Next issue:
    I just had a Video driver Update.
    All went smoothly, except for my taskbar, which is normally on my 2nd monitor, and 5 rows, with the normal part (1 row), Then a Tools Directory (1 row), Program Utility Directory (1 row), Win tools Directory (1 row) and finally a game directory (also 1 row).

    The Driver Install placed my Task Bar on the prime monitor, in itself, not that a big deal, except...
    When I drag it to the 2nd monitor where it belongs... it becomes 1 row, which cannot be altered anymore.
    Thus I lose all rows which are dedicated to directories holding short cuts to programs.

    How can I undo that silliness please?

    Thank you very much.

    PS: Why does it constantly do this, though I never do a "clean" install for drivers?
    Isn't it meant to keep all as is when updating drivers (where possible, of course)?

    I think the confusion is because you have Win 7 Ultimate X64 in your My Computer dropdown on ALL your posts. We often use these specifications in order to be able to advise, troubleshoot, and help.

     System Specifications - Quick Information for Posting

    I wrote this to run in CMD Prompt.

    Copy the below command into the CMD Prompt and press <Enter>. It's very quick, post the results . . .

    PowerShell Get-ComputerInfo ^| select OsName, WindowsProductName, WindowsEditionId, WindowsVersion, OsVersion, OsBuildNumber, OsHardwareAbstractionLayer, CsSystemType, OsLocale

    These results are from an old machine I have to give you an idea . . .

    OsName                     : Microsoft Windows 10 Pro
    WindowsProductName         : Windows 10 Pro
    WindowsEditionId           : Professional
    WindowsVersion             : 1909
    OsVersion                  : 10.0.18363
    OsBuildNumber              : 18363
    OsHardwareAbstractionLayer : 10.0.18362.387
    CsSystemType               : x64-based PC
    OsLocale                   : en-GB

    I hope, this will fix the issue?
