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

erbkaiser's profile on
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.
