Strange! I'm not able to reproduce that here. Would you be able to backup your settings (Settings > Options > Export) and attach them as well?

Thanks! I wasn't able to reproduce that issue here even with using your settings. If you click the "Reset all taskbars" button on the Settings > Taskbar tab, does that fix it up?

Ok, if you open regedit and navigate to the key below, is there a value in the right pane called "MinWidth"? If so, can you try deleting it (or just rename it to MinWidth_Old) and then restart DisplayFusion?

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics

That was it, I think I might have changed it once back on Windows 8, and it seems to not have an effect on Windows 10. Thanks!

I had the same problem on windows 11.
Just in case somebody is searching the web and finds this thread.

Much appreciated. This fix solves the issue for me, too.

EDIT: Only works until you reboot, unfortunately. The reg key returns.
EDIT2: Explorer Patcher is setting the key to 38 upon starting.

Are you running any software that modifies the Windows taskbar, like ExplorerPatcher or 7+ Taskbar Tweaker?

Sorry, disregard my last message, didn't see your update about ExplorerPatcher setting MinWidth. We'll have a fix for this for the next beta :)

Thanks!

Fix: Taskbar button width should now be correct when Explorer Patcher is present on the system

I removed my startup task to delete the reg key and this fix seems to have solved the issue.

Sorry for the late update. We posted Beta 13 late on Friday. Please let us know if you still run into any trouble after updating to Beta 13 :)

Thanks!
