Windows 7: Can you specify a custom taskbar icon size?

Can you specify a custom taskbar icon size?

Hey guys. Can I actually specify a custom size for these taskbar icons other than small or large as here? I have so many of them and my taskbar have already two rows and sometimes when I open programs or whatever else that is NOT included as a shortcut button on the taskbar, it takes extra space at which point the taskbar becomes scrollable with 3 rows. Not a good thing. I hate it with a passion.
Yes I could make my task bar with 3 rows, but no, I don't like to waste my precious screen space.
So basically I'd like to to make these icons a little smaller, kind of like the QuickLaunch icons.

Thanks for any advices

Why don't you install a dock and set it to autohide
You could assign your most used applications to the taskbar and the rest to the dock

You can keep the taskbar
just install 1 of the docks below and play around with it until you find a
look and feel you like.
Add shortcuts to your apps and set the dock to autohide

Drag the Taskbar to the right (or left) side of the screen. Then drag the divider for the Quick Launch bar to the upper right of the Taskbar. Voila! You can have a bunch of both Taskbar icons and Quick Launch icons.
