With multiple monitors of different resolutions the task bar only scales correctly on the main display. For example my main is a 3440x1440 32:9 display and I use a 3840x2160 16:9 tv as a secondary, I run 100% scale on the main display and 200% scale on the secondary, however the icons on the task bar of the secondary remain at 100% scaling even though the taskbar itself increases in size resulting in extra space to the right and below all the icons.
