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.

I do not think so. This seems to be "by design".

YES! i just figured it out.
You unlock your taskbar, and just drag the section as far as you'd like.
I hated the scrolling too.
Hope you enjoy this.
I was relieved. :]]]
Have a good one.
