Thanks for chiming in.
I tried changing all the font styles back to OS Default and applied, then I changed over to 125% fonts but the same problem with miss-match was there.
I did notice something else however. I tried applying all of the skins I've downloaded and all of them line up perfect, it's just the skins I've made that hqve the miss-match and I'd sure like to find a fix for that.
Now for another problem I just came up with... it should probably be in a new post.
With my Asian Red and the new WIP I'm working on, I'm having trouble changing font color or type in just the vertical taskbar "Active Button". For even more weirdness to consider, when you unlock the taskbar, the active button changes to the new font and color but when you lock the taskbar it changes back to the original black type and size making it un-readable with my dark colored active button.
My only available workaround was to create a vertical taskbar button image and lighten up the active button so the text was readable.
All this weirdness seems to be just with my machine so I did an sfc /scannow and it did find an error and fixed it so after reboot I hoped things would be different but Noooo......
And to top it all off, all of my open program windows have been shrinking on their own after use and leaving them open. That was the main reason for sfc /scannow.
Ok, I've done enough cross-posting in this response.... I'll now go back to making my WIP.
