Windows 7: Taskbar notification area icon spacing

Taskbar notification area icon spacing

Hi all!

Is it possible somehow to modify the vertical spacing
of the icons in the notification area (systray) ?

I set my taskbar height bigger than the default,
so my icons are placed into more rows:

If I place the taskbar to the left or right side of the screen,
the icon spacing is somehow became normal.
(But I don't want to use it placed like this)

So what this depends on?
Is it a thing that can be modified by editing msstyles,
or is there a registry key for this? Or something?

No definitive answer to this for you I'm afraid , but this discussion may provide a few pointers to the reasons for the gaps - our old friend the touch interface ....
