In Windows XP, is it possible to disable the taskbar scroll arrows that
occur when lots of task icons are present?
Yes I'm aware of the "Group similar taskbar buttons" option which
will reduce the number of taskbar icons. Regardless, when the number
of icons in XP's taskbar reaches a certain threshold (which is quite
low), the scroll arrows appear. Yes I know this is a "feature", but I
prefer the Windows 2000 style of progressively reducing the size of
the taskicons to make them fit.
