Windows 7: Taskbar's list of running programs squished

Taskbar's list of running programs squished

Kind of hard to explain in words, so here's some pics(attached). Is there any possible way to change the box sizes back to normal? This problem began a few months ago, and I really want to fix it.

Are you sure you had it before?

I don't think it's available in Starter....

I don't mean that I used to have the nice window preview that other Win7 versions have, I just meant that the box for the text used to be larger.

I was digging through some tweaks I used, and found one that could've caused this: W7 Taskbar Tweaker. On this forum, others seem to be having the same problem. I'll contact the tweak's creator and see if he can help.

There you go, sounds like you solved your problem.

Hello Matt,

I'm not sure if it's a issue specific to that program, but you might see if setting a larger minimum and maximum taskbar thumbnail window size using the tutorial below may be able to help. If not, you can use the "Undo" REG files to undo any changes made using it.

Hope this helps,

Neither did anything... Thanks, though. I just hope that the W7 Taskbar Tweaker creator still checks his Facebook.

Any luck with this problem? Did uninstalling 7 Taskbar Tweaker do the trick?

No, turns out that I had to delete some registry entries(or, a program had to, which W7 Taksbar Tweaker's author wrote for me.) I could send it to you, if you have any of the problems I mentioned.

I'm glad to hear that the problem is fixed! Was the issue initially caused by 7 Taskbar Tweaker?
