Windows 7: Notification Area filling Half the Screen

Notification Area filling Half the Screen

Ok so I am not sure where to post this...

We have a PC running Windows 7 Home, and we just upgraded its 20" 1600x900 Screen... to a 28" 1080p screen.

Everything is working fine.

Except the notification area, down at the lower right, where you click the little up arrow that says "show hidden icons" ...to open the little tiny window that has all the icons of whats running.

When we click that now, the window pops up and fills half the screen, while all the icons remain tiny and all lined up at the top of the window.

How do we get the window to be normal sized again?

Notification area
I've read Brink's excellent tutorial on how to change this area's settings. I changed the length of time a message appears. I'd like to test what I've done. How do I create a benign notification or action center message to test how long it remains on the screen? Thanks.
