Thank you but I have tried that but just lt just leaves an open space and gets bigger and bigger. Cannot move anything on the right side of taskbar.

make a new icon

If windows still uses the same extension, then put .ico on the file ending. If you can see the icon already used, then you can use it by doing a screen capture, then sizing it to fit in a photo or graphics program and then save to drive. You should then be able to right clk on the oversize icon and choose properties and assign your new smaller icon to it. The real question however is why it got larger on it's own?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
