Changing the size of the taskbar?

Hi,

I was just wondering if it is at all possible to alter the height of the taskbar in Windows 7? On Windows Vista I had made my taskbar thinner to be about the same size as the taskbar in Windows 98 etc.

I cannot remember how I did it, but I was just wondering if it is possible to do the same in windows 7?

Yes I have, I've done both to get it as thin as possible from that, still isn't the same though..

If you are already using the small icons in taskbar appearance, you cannot make the taskbar any smaller than this size.
