Taskbar Issues - Search Bar blank, sometimes black and white, and taskbar icons cut off

Hi,

I'm having issues with the taskbar being cut off slightly for the clocks, sometimes all the icons overlapped each other, and the search bar is having weird glitch.. attached is the screenshot.

I think this happened after a windows update. Any idea how to fix?

Having the same/similar problem. I just updated windows 10 to the latest version and it started happening. I'll watch this thread to see if there is a fix, or if we'll have to wait for a new version of displayfusion to fix this.

Have you got the News and Interests app and is it turned off? There is a known bug that turning off that app creates the issue in your screenshot.

Hi, I have a similar problem with tray area in the taskbar. I'm running on a laptop (HP ZBook G8 with both integrated and discrete graphics card) docked via Thunderbolt Dock to LG 34" display. I'm not sure whether the fact it has two switching graphics cards matters (AFAIK in the reported scenarios I was just on the integrated graphics), but I did not have such a problem on my desktop computer using the same display, nor on my old laptop (HP EliteBook x360 G2 with just integrated graphics) using same dock/connection and display setup. All those systems use the same version of Windows 10 Pro (20H2, latest patches) and latest version of DisplayFusion.

It's not consistent though. It's okay most of the time. Sometimes it's blank down there in the tray area. Sometime when getting back from some fullscreen app (like Remote Desktop), it's messy like what Adi Marwan87073 and James Pinkston posted. Blank tray can be "fixed", for example, by entering and exiting fullscreen Remote Desktop. When there is false overlay on tray, you just need to move mouse over to clear it.

I'm attaching screenshots of properly rendered taskbar, then with blank tray area, they with messed up tray area and also my display settings.

You have just solved the issue for me. Thanks! Though I want News and Intersets turned off. This is just a workaround. Hope they solve it soon.

Hello,

As Alan mentioned, this does seem to be an issue coming from the Windows 10 KB5003637 cumulative update, and enabling the News & Interests button seems to fix it up. It also looks like Windows has fixed this up in their latest insider build as well.

Does the issue persist whether DisplayFusion is running or not?

Thanks!

well from my part, not tried it yet, I have it set as just an icon and when, sorry if when, Microsoft announce a fix then will I turn it off

Sorry I got carried away a bit, from my part it is definately not an DF issue

Thanks!

I've tried the fix to turn on the news & interests, and seems to fix the bug for the moment..

Same annoying bug like everyone else

For me the bug seems to be related to DF as well, when turning off DF the issue goes away, even if "News and Interests" is off. I hope there's a fix soon.

For me it's only present with DF running.

For anyone that has run through this article: https://www.windowslatest.com/2021/06/11/windows-10-kb5003637-update-could-break-your-taskbar/ and is still having issues that seem to be directly related to DisplayFusion, could you send me a copy of your troubleshooting info? Here are the steps:

  • Open the Settings > Troubleshooting tab

Thanks!
