Windows 7: Task Bar - What on Earth?

Task Bar - What on Earth?

As the title says, just look at my taskbar. This happened all of a sudden, but why are the bottom halves of the icons on the left missing (but not the Start Orb), and why are only some of the notification icons missing their top halves?

Try switching between small icons and back. And if that doesn't work, try switching between small icons and "never combine" and back (right click on taskbar, go to properties).

Thanks, toggling icon size did the trick. But why did it happen, and why like that?

No problemo

I dunno, I've never seen that happen. Google didn't bring anything up either. Hopefully it doesn't happen again.
