    Low res taskbar icons problem


    Hey guys, installed windows 8 today, took some time to get used to it but finally managed to all my programs working again. Theres just one thing that bothers me and I joined this forum to find help on this : When you set taskbar icons to never combine, they become really low-res and ugly, and the system tray icons are always like this.
    I always used Never combine opton for the taskbar because I really prefer it that way, but this makes my eyes bleed every time.
    Im running a 1920x1080 resolution.

    If I test it on mine, it does show aliasing on the icon.
