    taskbar icons of open items (IE, Calculator) too small.


    I just did the 'refresh without losing data or settings', well it f'd my computer up pretty good by removing basically ALL settings! great!...
    Now when I have something like calculator open (not the tablet version BS app which I use none of), or if I have IE open or internet options, the icon is small and just the same as it always looks when it's not open but instead is highlighted, well it used to be larger and actually said what the item was instead of just the icon and was more efficient.
    anyone know how I can fix it?
