    Brick. Sorry to keep bugging you about this. I re-set it again to 1680x1050 at 100% DPI and I have the task bar back. I can live with it this way for now. I do notice that most of the discussions on this issue involve making the display larger than 100%. In my case, I would like it smaller without losing the task bar. Thanks again. skh.

    Do you have the latest graphics driver installed?

    If not, this could be a reason why the default (recommended) screen resolution is not displaying properly for you.

    Displaying my ignorance here, I'm not sure what a graphic driver is or how to update it. My computer is brand new. The monitor is 2 years old.

    In that case, please go ahead and create a new thread for this issue for us to continue there so we don't go off topic anymore from this tutorial.

    Hello ,
    new here (not to computing)
    .
    I did Option Three :
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop LogPixels
    and set it to my monitor's DPI of 94 ;
    logoutlogin .
    However , I double checked the inch ruler via
    Cntrl Pnl > Display > Advanced sizing of text and other items
    _ set a custom scaling level (not recommended)
    ..
    -- Before and after and do not see any difference ;
    it still reads long . --
    Even did regedit 'As Administrator' _ no change_
    I remember that in W7 it would change , and get almost exact .
    ...
    Is there a work around ?
    ...
    thanks in advance

    Hello positiveX, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Just to verify, did you sign out and in or restart the computer afterwards to apply?

    Looks like a change was made. I have updated OPTION THREE to add steps 6 and 7 that will allow it to work again.

    Trying to set W10 to monitor physical (94) DPI

    .
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop
    Win8DpiScaling REG_DWORD 0x00000001 (1)
    .
    However , the 'double check' of the inch ruler mentioned above still shows no change .
    ..
    ? ideas ?
    There are a couple of other registry entries in this general area that might need to be set .
    ..
    present setting :
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics
    DpiScalingVer REG_DWORD 0x00001000 (4096)
    Click image for larger version.

    or
    present setting
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics
    AppliedDPI REG_DWORD 0x00000060 (96)
    Click image for larger version.

    finally , maybe
    present setting (not set)
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\PerMonitorSettings\<ID>
    DpiValue 0x00000000 (0)
    Click image for larger version.

    This technet info may imply that trying to set Windows 10 to my monitor's
    physical DPI of 94 is not do-able : 'DPI-related APIs and registry settings Updated: October 20, 2013 Applies To: Windows 8.1' https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dn528846.aspx#system
    System-wide scale factor

    When the Let me choose one scaling level for all my displays checkbox is checked, the user can specify a scale factor that applies to all displays, regardless of each display’s pixel density. By using the custom setting, the user can select values other than 100%, 125%, 150%, 200%, although they are limited to the range (100%-500%). This setting is configured in the HKCU\ControlPanel\Desktop\LogPixels registry key.

    Table 6 HKCU\ControlPanel\Desktop\LogPixels Values
    Key value Meaning
    96 100% scaling on every display
    120 125% scaling on every display
    144 150% scaling on every display
    192 200% scaling on every display
    <other> <other>*100/96 scaling on every display
    ...
    ? "Limited to range 100% -"
    which begins at physical DPI of 96 (according to the chart) .
    ?
    FYI : regedit verification of 'AppliedDpiScaling' keeps 're-setting' to (96) [binary] .
    ?
    So , does this mean that we cannot set our Windows 10 'below' 96 DPI ?
    If so , maybe some more involved with M$ could raise this issue .
    ...
    Again , thanks in advance

    As a test, use OPTION FOUR to reset DPI, and try again to see if that may help.
