Windows 7: Change width of a specific taskbar button

Change width of a specific taskbar button

Hi!

What I want to do is to change the width of one specific taskbar icon but keep the rest intact.

Is this possible to do?

Take a look at the screenshot I posted and you'll understand what I mean.

If I right click on taskbar you have several options.
Personally I have a check mark on "Lock Taskbar" on mine. If I uncheck it I can raise or lower the height of the taskbar.
In my taskbar I can grab and Icon and move it left or right but not the width that you are talking about.

So...right click on taskbar and open properties and see if you can find a place where you can select the size or width of each icon.
Post back and let us know what you did.

Welcome to Seven Forums artnoir. This tutorial for the recycle bin Shawn wrote may do what you want. You could pin the application to the taskbar in a folder, and make the space larger.
