Windows 7: Any way to make quicklaunch and taskbar icons same height?

Any way to make quicklaunch and taskbar icons same height?

I added the quicklaunch bar back to the taskbar (so that I can open new programs with one click instead of the retarded two that Windows 7 wants). Anyway, when I do this, the large icons in the quicklaunch bar cause the whole taskbar to increase in height, meaning that my mouse cursor now has to be on the taskbar icons instead of them still highlighting if the cursor is at the bottom of the screen. It's an annoyance, albeit one I've come to expect from Microsoft's incompetence. Isn't there some way to make them the same height? Pic below for clarification.

P.S. Don't tell me to use the small icons, because then they're too small and I still have the same problem but in reverse regarding them not highlighting if my mouse is at the bottom of the screen.

Welcome to Seven Forums Blowfish64. The reason there are no replies is that, like me, no one has apparently found one. I saw your original post, and went searching again, as I have done in the past when this question arose. Again I just find how to change from small to large or visa versa. A Guy

Taskbar Height Question
I've got my taskbar set to use small icons, but I'm wondering if there's any way to make it even thinner yet. Basically, I use a custom start orb that looks like the min/max/close buttons, and I'd like to make it so the distance from the bottom of that to the bottom of the taskbar is the same...
