    Taskbar jump list has distorted icons and placing


    Hello folks! I hope you are all doing well

    So I installed Windows 8.1 Single Version OEM on my Toshiba L850-B750. Everything went great except I get this weird taskbar jumplist popup which I have attached and I searched extensively to find a solution but to no avail. Can anyone tell me what could be causing this? I saw one or two users post about it on the interwebs but no one replied in their threads.

    Thanks in advance

    Edit:
    Solution: Thanks archtop for finding the fix! (Post #20, add to his rep)

    Well I'd rather have it fixed because I do often use it. Thanks for that tip though.

    same error for me


    I also get the same jump list menu corruption. I changed the theme so it's easier to see, but the menu background is supposed to be white. Hope you can see the picture and what I mean.

    edit: I forgot to add that this is a new Windows 8.1 pro install that I just did. Only additional software is Chrome.

    unstinalled chrome


    Thanks for the suggestion, but no luck. I uninstalled chrome and restarted but still get the same result. I changed the metro personalization to green this time.

    I have the same problem. I just reinstalled windows 8.1 and my jump list now maintains the same color as the settings charms bar that comes in on the side of the screen. I can't seem to disconnect them. So the jump bar menu is white with a normal windows border and the charms settings menu is blue like normal. I know they are connected right now because when I pull up the start screen and type color I get an option to change the color and background of start. However there isn't even a white option here either. So even if they are linked the jump list still is pretty illegible.
