Please see the screenshot:: Screenshot by Lightshot
Also you can notice that the icons are not very easy to see.
I was wondering if you could help me?
I've tried everything. 

Also not sure if my font is the default font even though it is when I go into Chrome settings...

Screenshot 1 - everything is ok, only icon is wrong. The cleaning icon cache may help, but not 100% sure that will help.

Screenshot 2 (Chrome) - everything is ok.

Right click on the task bar, select settings.  There is an option to use small task bar buttons.  See if this is on.  If it is, turn it off and the icons should be larger.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Hi, thanks for the reply. I tried clearing the icon cache but no joy there. Any other suggestions? Also, my mistake.. I meant to tall not too wide.

In regards to the icons, do you happen to have SageThumbs installed? That caused the exact same issue (white background on Windows 10-specific/Windows store icons) for me a while back. 


In addition, try clearing 'Thumbnails' in the Disk Cleanup tool - that, too, could help remedy the issue.
