    Taskbar Icon Scaling Issue


    I have a strange issue when right-clicking programs on the taskbar. The Close & Unpin/Pin From Taskbar icons are misplaced.

    Here is what it looks like: (I was right clicking on OneDrive)



    It appears to be some kind of scaling issue. How do I fix this?

    Here are my laptop specs:

    Model: Dell Inspiron 7000 Series 15" Build 7428

    Processor: 5th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-5500U Processor (4M Cache, up to 3.00 GHz)

    OS:
    Windows 8.1 (64Bit) English

    Display:
    15.6-inch 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) Truelife LED-Backlit Touch Display with Wide Viewing Angle (IPS)

    Video card: AMD Radeon R7 M270 4GB DDR3

    Welcome to the forum,

    We've been seeing a lot of those.

    It's related to this update KB3072318, uninstall it and see if that fixes it.
