Workaround: Manually delete the undesired taskbars.

Resolved Issues

CPU usage no longer increases with video content

High-resolution monitors are no longer treated as analog displays

Previously, the extended EDID information passed by the displays of high-resolution monitors such as 4K UHD was handled incorrectly, resulting in monitor display being set as analog. This limited available resolutions, causing issues such as black bars small windows, and impacted PCoIP performance. This issue is now fixed. (59517)
