Hey guys,

My girlfriend has been using my laptop recently to play an old game from the 90s that needs to run at 1024 x 768. She's been changing the display resolution of Windows to this in order to run the game, and then changing it back to 1080p when I want to use it, which is fine. However, since doing this, the taskbar has started behaving weirdly. The default recommended scaling for 1080p on my laptop is 125%. When it's on this scale the taskbar cuts off screen and glitches out as you can see in the images. If I set the scaling to 100%, the issue resolves, but everything is a little small for me so I'd like to try and keep it at 125%. Any idea how to fix this?

I have the exact same issue. Just built a new PC for a customer last week. As soon as she changed it to 125% today, same thing. If I move the taskbar to the other sides, it glitches on top but not on the sides. Tried latest driver and one from a year ago. (GT710)

I'm going to try a different card and a few other things. I'll let you know if anything works.
