    Hmmmm, that's wrong way around. You wouldn't be using some special theme by any chance ?

    No theme, I've change my windows yesterday and installed the latest updates from Microsoft, so everything is Stock, I thing the only solution is change back to 100%?

    You can change to 100% and still be able to make Icons, text and other stuff larger. On the bottom of Display in "Personalize" you can change text sizes for menus, icons etc. On desktop, you can hold Ctrl button on KB and turn mouse wheel one way or other to make icons smaller or larger without affecting their size in taskbar.

    Yeah, I've change back to 100%, but I think Microsoft should pay more attention to High DPI displays

    Thank you all for your king replies.
