Windows 7: Adding Recycle bin to taskbar (done, but.)

Adding Recycle bin to taskbar (done, but.)

Hello all. I'm pretty fresh here so please don't kill me if i post this wrong.
Here goes.

I used one of the tutorials for placing the Recycle bin and others on the taskbar
(link to tutorial). all works great but for one thing.

When using Large icons on the toolbar they seem to make the active
icons (programs in use) frame not reach all the way down to the bottom
of the bar. (see image)

Question: Is there any way to fix this problem without setting
the icon size to small?
maybe adjusting the size
just 3 pixels or something?

Some information about my desktop/screen:
1680x1050, Dpi = 100%, default sized taskbar, Nvidia 8600gt. BenQ FP222W a.

Hello Frank,

It may just be that particular Firefox icon. I do not seem to see the same thing with mine. The Recycle Bin is off a bit from the other pinned icons, but that is because it is a toolbar instead.

No, i don't think you quite get it, its the White frame "gloss" around the active icons that is the problem.
they don't reach down all the way to the bottom of the superbar. It is the same on your screen-shot as well.

And the fact that the Recycle bin is a bit narrow to the left towards the start orb, i don't care so much about.

Just tried this and it's the taskbar that gets resized when using the Large Icon for the bin.

Hello Hitcher,

Yes the taskbar is increased in height just a tiny bit to accommodate the larger Recycle Bin icon.

Further Googling reveals that you can use the same method shown here for pinning My Computer but with this link %SystemRoot%\explorer.exe shell:RecycleBinFolder - unfortunately it wont change it's look when items are in it.
