    HELP regardind the right-click programs action in taskbar


    Click image for larger version

    so as you can see, there's something wrong with the size of the Pin/Unpin option and the Close Window option. The rest of them are fine, and it's the same for every program in my taskbar. Any ideas how to fix it? It's a fresh windows install and it's done that since the first time booting up. I'm also using ClassicShell. Any help is greatly appreciated

    Windows 8.1 Pro


    I got a new laptop yesterday, Lenovo W541. It does the same thing, so I downloaded the Windows 8.1 Pro ISO and reformatted it. Still looks horrible. The weird thing is, I have a Win 8.1 Pro desktop in front of me and it looks fine and normal. Spent all night trying to fix it.

    the thing that did it for me was refreshing my system. so basically you're gonna have to reinstall all programs and drivers again, but it worked.

    to refresh it, go to PC Settings -> Update and Recovery -> Recovery -> Refresh your PC without affecting your files. It will require your bootable USB or DVD with windows on it. Hope it works for you

Well honestly I don't even know where this question should go. Before I say anything else I know this problem has nothing to do with a virus because I've ran full computer virus scans with 2 different programs.

Pinning programs to taskbar in General Support
Since Win7 does not seem to have the 'All Programs', it is a little clumsy to e.g. pin programs to the taskbar. Right now I do it via the program files. Is there an easier way??
