2nd monitor Taskbar clock/date display issue

Recently I replaced my secondary monitor which was a 24" 1080p monitor with a 32" 1440p monitor. My main monitor is also 1440p.

On the multi monitor taskbar, the clock used to display correctly, but when I moved to the larger monitor it now displays like is shown in the snip I have attached. I've tried hiding and reshowing, moving it to top, left, and right side, and also making the taskbar bigger and nothing has fixed it.

Thoughts?

I'm on Windows 10 1809 but it was doing it on 1803 as well.

Thanks! It looks like you have the Taskbar Clock Size options set in the DisplayFusion Settings > Advanced Settings window. Could you try clearing those, then restart DisplayFusion?

Can I jump in here? I cannot see the protected snip from the OP. So I don't know if it's the same.

But, my clock/data on the 2nd monitor Taskbar is not looking correctly.
I do not have any custom settings in my Advanced Settings for the clock.

Attached are a screenshot, and the debuginfo from troubleshooting tab.

Thanks Keith.

@Brenku: That looks like it could be an issue with Windows reporting the wrong scaling level to DisplayFusion. If you logout of Windows and back in, does that make any difference?

It seems to be persistent across reboots. I have a laptop in this case though. It generally boots to my main screen, and then I Enable the dual-monitor profile to blank my laptop display and appear on my two monitors instead.

It's not a huge issue, and I guess I can adjust it via those settings in advanced. I just thought maybe you had some quick fix. You're pretty legendary on these forums.

Haha, thanks

Could you attach a copy of your troubleshooting info when the second monitor is enabled?

This issue still persists with DisplayFusion 9.8 on Windows 10 Home (Version 20H2). The primary display is on a laptop (clock/date display fine), and the 2 external monitors, clock/date is cutoff.

Hi Nicholas,

Are you using any custom scaling settings on your monitors?

Thanks!

Primary display (laptop), where it displays fine, resolution is 3000x2000 (Recommended), size of text at 175%, no custom scaling.
Display #2 & #3 are both 3840x1600 (Recommended), size of text 100% (Recommended), no custom scaling.

I have a similar issue. Affects several menus, like the clock and the speaker settings. I also use no custom scaling, main display is 1440P and the problematic display is 4k (with "change the size of text, apps, and other items" set to 150%.
