You can't change the size of the taskbar in Windows 11, but there are programs available that will allow you to do it. I use one called RoundedTB. The other option is to download a registry hack to make the taskbar smaller

Thank you both for your replies. Win11 doesn't make it as easy to edit the taskbar icon sizes. From what I can find online this requires editing the registry to change, which is something I really don't want to do. A simpler solution is to reduce the Display Settings scale from 125% down to 100%. This allows me to use the Desktop resolution and see the entire screen. The downside is that the text is quite small but is still readable.

I already use a tweaker for the start menu for windows 10 (classic shell) to replace the useless bodge microsoft foisted on us and regain a windows-XP style start menu.

I think there are tweakers out there that let you fiddle with the windows 11 task bar - I believe you can replace its little strip smack in the middle of the screen with a proper full-screen width taskbar, and also something like classic shell exists to replace the start menu with a classic one.

Not going near windows 11 till I absolutely have to, so have not really investigated tweakers. And since I have recently bought a brand new PC, it will stay windows 10 till whenever support stops (2025?). I switched off the TPM(?) module in the BIOS, so the windows 11 update thinks it can't be replaced with 11 so no auto-update bork where it sneaks it in all unexpectedly!

I don't have any experience with windows 11, I'm still on windows 10. I use the desktop resolution setting, and I find that every time I start the game I have to move the game window up a tiny bit because the bottom part of the message screen is a hidden behind the taskbar, though not a much as yours is. I can click and hold on the top window margin and move it up a fraction. (I don't regard this as a bug, it's just something I do every time I start the game. No big deal.)

I have the "scale and layout" setting on windows set to 125%.

I too have this same issue. So when the game opens to the pick a scenario screen etc...I move it up a bit then.

This is what I see when I run MBT and I use small Icons on the taskbar



.....and that's pretty much the way it's always been on this computer and the CRV monitor that this machine replaced. I had no idea some people had to make wee adjustments like that.......... but, that is one of the joys/quirks about PC's..... everyone has a different combination of components and they don't all work 100% the same way

Thanks for all the feedback. I'm sorted out now. I can run the game at either 100% or 125% and, with the minor adjustment in screen position, see everything.

Installed the 22h2 version this morning. Everything seems to be working so far.
