Resize taskbar pin area Tags: Configuration Taskbar Quick Launch Windows 7 Last response: March 17, 2012 3:15 PM in Windows 7 Share dabla75 March 17, 2012 1:19:39 PM I'm looking for a way to adjust the size of the area where pinned programs sit on the taskbar. In WinXP with the quick launch, we had the ability to resize the area & additional icons would either show when the >> button was pressed or would display on multiple lines if the taskbar was resized. just can't figure out how to tackle this in windows 7... Thanks!

Besides the options you see there (Taskbar/Jump Lists/Toolbars) you can click on the How Do I Customize Taskbars link for more help. | Report abuse dabla75 March 17, 2012 2:31:55 PM WR2 said:Hello dabla75; Right mouse click on the Taskbar.

FYI my task bar is already unlocked... all of the options in the task bar properties are indeed set the way I need them. | Report abuse devBunny March 17, 2012 3:15:43 PM What I did was unpin everything and set up my own Quick Launch toolbar. I've also reverted to the Classic theme and tripled the height of the taskbar. Smaller icons and more text suits me a lot better. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Windows 7>Resize taskbar pin area> Related ressources: ForumTaskbar issue Forumtoolbar - can't resize ForumWindow won't resize properly ForumTaskbar Forumtaskbar ForumCannot properly add quick launch icons to my taskbar ForumMore On Taskbar Issue ForumMy taskbar won't stay sorted ForumTaskbar Glitch ForumTip: When Auto-Hide of Taskbar doesn't work ForumTaskbar Width & Location Forumnotification area ForumWindows 8 consumer preview can't disable metro ForumIcons & Short Cuts- (advice please?)
