Lenovo Battery Gauge doubled in size and sometimes disapear

I have enabled the Lenovo Battery Gauge via Lenovo Vantage.  Two questions:

 

1.  From time to time (no regular schedule) it randomly disappears.  Why?

 

2.  Yesterday (1-30-2018) I had to re-enable it, and it appears to have doubled or tripled in size.  It used to be a nice, compact little icon, and now it's huge and a little distracting.  I couldn't find a setting to return it to its original size.

 

Thank you for any assistance you might provide.

Re: Lenovo Battery Gauge

Can you please post a screenshot of the issue where the gauge is too big?

Also, what model PC do you have (e.g. ThinkPad T460)?

Re: Lenovo Battery Gauge

I am using a Lenovo Ideapad 110.  As you see in the screenshot, the gauge is significantly larger than the time and other icons; they used to be more proportional.  Sorry I don't have a screenshot of the "before."  Thank you for your assistance.

I have the same problem. It seems that when Lenovo update their app, the icon dissappear.

The problem is, when we choose "small icons" on Windows 10 taskbar, the icon no longer resize to smallest size, it continues big as if we are using big icons.

 

Thanks.

I could not follow what is being reported in this thread.

When I have default taskbar settings, the gauge icon looks like this:

When I set the option about "Use small taskbar buttons", the gauge icon looks like this:

I guess your problem may have to do with a combination of settings, such as resolution and scaling.  If you can tell me the steps to reproduce this, I am sure we can investigate it further.  Thanks!

I am having the same problem. Above is a screenshot of how the gauge is looking. My laptop is an IdeaPad 320 (15-IKB). If I recall well, this happened somewhere after I got a BSOD. But somewhere around this point I also changed the scaling for Windows, from 125% to 100% a few times. Some of these times were trying to see if I could solve the problem only by doing this scaling change. Currently (this picture) I'm using 100% scaling on 1080p and also tried switching back and forth from the 'small icons' option for the taskbar buttons.

 

I believe there must be some sort of registry entry for this, so then we can try resetting it or bringing it back to normal values - there must be a solution, after all.

Thanks anyway

I have the same problem, the battery icon is huge several days ago, no matter I set small or large icon for taskbar, it did not change:

When I have default taskbar settings, the gauge icon looks like this:

When I set the option about "Use small taskbar buttons", the gauge icon stays as the same:

it is very huge and looks really strange.
