Caption buttons size change when resolution changes

I change the size of the caption buttons to 17 (default: 18), just by changing from 18 to 17, the clock in systray it is smaller. But when I play a game that has a different resolution than windows has, when i exit the game, the size of the caption buttons goes to default (bigger, the clock takes more space), but if I go to check the value of the caption buttons in "Advanced appearance settings...", it is still 17. Only after a system restart the captions buttons goes to the size I personalized. I don't want to have to do a system restart every time I play a game... Can anyone help me?

Hi,
 
 
1. Which game are you playing? And at what resolution are you playing the game?
 
We can update the graphic card drivers and check if everything works fine. Also, if the issue persists we can perform a clean boot to find the 3rd party program causing the conflict.
Method 1.
Let us first update the graphics card drivers and verify if the issue persists.
For more information refer to the links below:

Also check if there are any Windows Updates available for the graphic card.

I tried that, and I dont need a game for that to happen, if I change the screen resolution the problem happen. I current have 1366x768, if I change to 1360x768 the problem occurs. I tried to update the graphic drivers, run a clean boot... the same thing happens.
