Windows 10 - small taskbar Systray clock text is too large with large DPI

erbkaiser's profile on WallpaperFusion.com
I'm using my work laptop with large scaling/DPI (150%) on the native screen, and two attached monitors with normal scaling. All screens are running the native 1080p resolution and I am using DisplayFusion to give each screen its own taskbar.

Under this setup, the system tray clock on DF taskbars is far too large. I have narrowed it down to the DPI setting: if I set this to 100% for my laptop screen, the DF taskbar clocks display correctly.

Things I've already tried which did not help:
-Setting a custom size for the DF taskbar (30px to match Windows small taskbar)
-Advanced Setting - Font Scaling: Force X/Y

Is there something else I can try, or is this a known issue with scaling?

This usually happens if the scaling level in Windows has changed but the system hasn't been logged out/logged in. The next time you run into this, could you try a logout/login?

Thanks, that fixed the issue.

It means I need to make sure to have the additional screens attached before I power on the laptop, but that's something I can get used to.

I'm hoping this can be fixed. I have the large time/date issue as well. I have a surface pro and dock and undock with different configurations, so I don't want to have to log out and lose my work when I go from one location to another.

I'm just wondering is there is any update on fixing this issue? Sorry but it is the one annoying thing about DisplayFusion.

Hey Keith, just thought I'd quote you to see if there's any update on this issue?

Sorry Nathan, unfortunately this is a Windows issue and requires a logout/login to fix.

Every time I start my computer the clock font size issue appears. I have to log off and in again after every restart for this to get fixed, which is still annoying. There must be a way to refresh it at every start, not just at logging in!
