    Creators update Taskbar shrinks after reboot

    Brand new system that I just purchased week ago today, half way through installing my apps onto it creators update hits me. Let its run it's thing figuring since most of my apps I have not installed yet this would almost be a fresh install of that.

    I let the update finish and go tweak some settings that were changed most noticeably my taskbar. I had it set for auto-hiding which was still working but also had it set for 2 lines high which I had to reset. Relocked the task bar and everything was fine until I rebooted and the height was back to 1 though it was still auto-hiding fine.
    How can I fix this as it was fine before the creators update, well the day or 2 I had this system before it hit me. Tried google but could not come across any solutions that were not years old and there for not for this update.

    No idea what has changed but I just rebooted the system, actually it locked up on me trying to figure out if this new game bar function is worth it and when I rebooted the task bar kept it's size.

    I guess we will have to wait until somoene comes up with a fix. I'm not expecting Windows to do anything in the near future.

    And today on normal reboots the taskbar was back to changing sizes, I very seldom shut the system off so I guess just have to deal with it.

    Try not setting it to autohide and make sure that it is "Locked" to see what happens. There are always problems for the first couple of months after Microsoft pushes out a release too early for 10.

    In my case killing Cortana caused this. Entering "sfc /scannow" in an administrative command prompt restores it.

    Cortana can be disabled: Enable or Disable Cortana in Windows 10

    I am hesitant to try this fix ad I have only turned off the options IN Cortana not disabled it in anyway on this machine.

    Also I do not have that key path in my registry and i do not know if it was changed with the creators update since that tutorial is well over a year old and therefore several updates old.

    You may then want to go back to a image if you have one before Creator's was installed. I do not even install until a couple of months later on my wife's laptop that is switched between Windows and Linux Mint. Better to wait until the driver's for the display, etc catch up, which can also cause weird behaviors, along with if you are using Classic Shell or Start10. Always rule out issues by going into msconfig and do a Diagnostic Startup to see if it happens. If not, then go to a Selective to further diagnose.

    Happening for me too. It happens when I auto hide the taskbar. When I turn off "auto hide" I no longer have the problem. I created a new user profile to test, same problem. Microsoft had me try to install Win10 1703 upgrade again but same problem. Even happens on clean boot. Unable to roll back to Win10 1607 unfortunately.
