Windows 10 Taskbar bug presented in 1709, worst on 1803 upgrade

Hello, my issue is, when after i close any game or any fullscreen application my taskbar icons (close to the clock) it becomes blurry and some disappear...

It should look like this...

After i close a game it turns into blurry icons and some disappear, at this stage is there other bug, it not let me take any PrintScreen, when i try to send the picture to the Paint it becomes a black picture, cant take any desktop picture or fix the blurry icon, unless i reboot computer...

Differences between upgrades:

1709 the issue is almost the same, but its only on the blurry icons.

1803 there are 3 issues, the blurry icons, a few disappear and cant take desktop PrintScreen

I hope you Devs can tell something about it...

PS: This is not important since the update is not released yet, but there is other issue that i find in 1803 with AMD driver, the latest 18.3.4 the system wount boot, it stays stuck on Windows logo, 18.3.3 and older updates works like a charm

Hi Farhan_Tahir,

Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Just to add clarify, can you please revisit the driver version of your video card on the device manager by clicking on the Driver tab? For further information on the troubleshooting, you can refer on the posts of GiuseppeRusso94 last May 26, 2018 on this thread about the thread he created as I also have engaged and verified to him the extent of troubleshooting he's done as others on this thread also performed similar steps as he did. Thus, the investigation that we are conducting.

Hope that this sheds light on the information I am collecting.

Best regards

i have the same issue. it's annoying. in version 1709 I didn't see that the taskbar bug.. only the blurry icons that still appears but not like the first screenshot.. but the worst came with version 1803 upgrade. it's annoying that we have to reboot or sign out then sign in again then things went back normal... but when we run a game, then we close the game, the taskbar bug strikes back. also in this version 1803, not only taskbar bug I think, but also the windows os itself like we wanna go to task view, its still a little laggy, not smooth operation, maybe took 1.5 seconds long to make task view appears.

The issue of the blurry system tray icons, which was also present in version 1709 (and likely previous versions), is caused by those icons being "re-sampled and re-drawn" over time, which degrades their fidelity, instead of "refreshed or re-rendered" from scratch. It is annoying, but not as annoying as this system tray icon spacing/placement/disappearance bug introduced in 1803.

I've now reproduced the system tray icon bug on three different computers - my gaming PC which has the GTX 1080 in it, the Dell OptiPlex with integrated Intel HD 630, and this morning on a work PC with both Intel HD 630 and GTX 1050 Ti. On the work PC, I did a clean install of 1803 to a new hard drive.

With this problem so easily reproducible, I'm hopeful that it can be zeroed-in and fixed in a future build.

Hello everyone, I noticed that, having a laptop, if I connect an external monitor, this problem does not happen, as soon as I unplug the monitor, readily on the laptop you see the bug.
At this point I think that it could be a bug in the Nvidia or Intel drivers.

And, not only is there a bug in the taskbar, but it also messes up the resolution by shrinking and cutting the steam or uplay windows.

It happens on AMD as well. I'm quite sure it's a Windows subsystem problem vs. drivers.
