    Nothing changed. Only thing changed was my computer updated to 10061 Before that everything was fine with taskbar. Its unlocked and I have small icons. WTF


    edit: Theres gotta be some kind of regedit fix for this? I have aspect ratio issues that I always have to change via registry. I wish I just stayed on Windows 8.1 that came with this damn computer.
    Oh, my, I do hope you didn't install Windows 10 over the top of Windows 8.1! If you did, I believe there's a way to roll back to 8.1, but someone smarter than I will have to tell you how to do it.

    Good luck.

    Make sure you check the Display setting for the Text and Apps sizes. On one of my systems the thing had gone to 150% so when I set it back to 100% it looked normal again.

    I do still occasionally get large icons when I start the system from powered down. The will usually readjust later or after a restart.....

    As Saltgrass mentioned - check your display settings. I had to change the resolution since Windows only seems to drive my monitor at the laptop LCD res.

    The AMD driver is also a little flaky - glyphs in the properties dialog window (newer and older drivers do not have the glyphs issue, but there are other oddities such as driving the monitor at 64 hertz (not 60 or 75 hertz))

    You can always go back to Win8.1 if you have the key. Then run Win10 as a VM, native dual boot, or a VHD dual boot.

    Check your DPI on each display (if applicable)

    I think the taskbar is larger because time and date are both shown. I have a smaller taskbar in 8.1 but that only shows time.

    I have the narrow taskbar with both time and date, Trucker.

    It is strange (or maybe not) that each new build brings with it its own nasties. We just have to live with them until the next drop.

    BTW, is yours a clean install or update?

    But if you change to "use small taskbar buttons" in properties, it will only show the time.
