Make Taskbar Icons Bigger


Hi,

Is there any way to make Vista taskbar icons bigger (not quick
launch)?

I have removed text so now only icons are being showed but they are
quite small (not like win 7).

Stick with Win7 beta if you like its taskbar that much... and then buy
it when it gets released.

Hey,

Yes, I did that.

I mean't icons of running programs. They are like 16x16 or 32x32. I
want to be them the same size as quick launch ones (when set as large
icons).

I found another solution (if anyone wants one).

I set value to 40 instead of -255 and now they are windows 7 alike just
with small icons.

DjiXas,

Was this with the *MinWidth *value? If so, then the icon is the same
size for me except that it looks like it trys to start another of the
same icon partialy beside it.

DjiXas,

It may just be the screenshots are not doing it justice, but I notice
that the box the icons is in is a little bit bigger but not the icon
itself.

Brink,

Yes. But at least that area is clickable. I couldn't find nor make
icons any bigger.
