Win 7 64 Taskbar is Too Wide
Posted 22 December 2012 - 07:22 PM
I just installed Windows 7 X64 and I always move my taskbar to the left side of the monitor screen. Well, the icons are twice as wide as they are tall so that I can`t reduce the width of my Taskbar to the degree XP allows. I am not running in XP mode okay? That was just a comparison. This is so goofy. How do I shrink the size of my Taskbar icons so that I can reduce the width of the Taskbar. I enable small icons already. My Start button is too wide as well and sometimes it just disappears like it did tonight. Any suggestions?
Thanks Everyone and Merry Christmas!

I'm having a hard time visualizing this. Is it possible that you can get a screenshot of a system that works the way you want it to, and your current one so I could see the difference?
EDIT: Would this tweak solve your problem? - http://www.askvg.com...t-in-windows-7/
Cheers and Regards

Wow! I would never have suspected a subject would have been about this because I Googled and I guess Ididn`t word it correctly because everything was pertaining to something else. Thanks very much for the link. Anyway, I have sent a jpg along with this note. As you can see the Task Bar icon is missing. I did figure out from the WWW how to re-enable it the first time this happened but then when I rebooted a second time poof! it was gone again. And even when it is there if I shrink the width of the Task Bar more than a certain width the crazy button just hangs out in space Like I said it is weird and so goofy with an OS that is supposed to be so sophisticated. I tried rummaging through the registry but I know little of such things and only touch what has been proven to work by a generous internetter. Ha, it took me a couple of years to get XP the way I liked it and now I get to more or less start over. Well, I will learn a lot. If you have suggestions I appreciate anything you might think of and I certainly going to look at the link. Thanks very much for your help.
