In any case, Geforce Experience isn't installed on my
setup, and I also don't have any Toolbars or clutter
to show for it.


Installed 1809 via USB stick on this device earlier today
- No new tool bars

Downloaded and installed a few NVIDIA driver(for this device MX150
graphics processor) using setup.exe which included GeForce Experience,
PhysX and drivers. Was using driver 388.73 replaced with 397.31, then
repeated with the latest 418.91(Feb 2019)
- No additional toolbars (Quick Launch and Win10 Taskbar remained
intact, no new toolbars)
- Uninstalled GeForce Experience, PhysX was present before and not
removed(its Control Panel provides an option I occasionally use for 3D)

Tried, but couldn't duplicate the op's issue - didn't notice anything
different with 397 or 418 vs. 388; 397 worked fine/rolled back to it.


The "footprint" of the package was reduced at some point.

It would still be possible to install an older package,
such as a new video card with installer DVD in box, it
could have an older driver in it. For example, I have
one older video card here, that I always use the DVD
in the box to install it on a new OS.

Hi, Paul.
Must take up close the half of the DVD then if the download is smaller!
- the extracted download driver is 1.6GB and consistent with the
release info that clearly state 1.5 times the size of
pre-extracted(553MB) file is needed.

I did notice, and not something I need(that the later drivers add a
'bunch'(didn't count them or dwell on)of additional NVIDIA Control Panel
options/features...I suspect for the gamer/HD community.

I ask because after having recently upgraded to 1809, I have noticed
that the taskbar that I keep at the bottom of the screen is taller
than it used
to be. I ues the small taskbar buttons, and before the buttons just
fit between the top and bottom of the taskbar. Now, there is room
enough for an
extra row of buttons below the ones I have, and the taskbar refuses
to shrink any smaller. Help!

To clarify: The toolbar is not locked, and I have already set the small
icons on.

If it wasn't 1809, then it must be my installing the nvidia graphics card,
but I can't find any settings anywhere that would affect the tool bar.

I know that things are different because where the icons in the notify area
used to be in a single line, they are now in two lines.

hover your mouse over the top line of the toolbar and it will change to
two arrows pick what you want, up or down.
