    Windows 10 taskbar right click menu looking strange


    So a few weeks ago I recognized that when I right click my taskbar, the menu layout has changed.



    I have no idea why it looks like that, but I would like to get it changed back to normal somehow. I tried to remove KB3072318 but it appears to be not installed in my computer.

    I don't know if this is related in any way, but I think I noticed this after I installed Corsair Utility Engine for my new keyboard.

    That is because you have the wrong language chosen. You have it showing Czech. Search Engines are wonderful tools for a reason.

    Now you just need to figure out how to change the language.

    The language is Finnish and probably the chosen language for a reason, they have to post in English here.

    The language is not the problem, the menu layout is.

    That is the current layout of the Taskbar context menu, it looks like that. The only way to get the old context menu back is to go back to a Windows build before the change.

    Here's a screenshot showing the same context menu on my Finnish Windows 10 machine, you can see it is exactly the same as yours:

    Really, this is not an issue. It's just a change in how Windows looks today.

    Oh, I did not know this. Windows must have installed new update when I restarted my PC after installing CUE. Just happened to ask from my friend did his layout look like that and it didn't, so I thought mine wa bugged.

    Thanks for the answers tho! Next time I remember to say that I have Finnish as my language .
