Windows 7: Notification Area - spaces between icons? - more rows?

Notification Area - spaces between icons? - more rows?

Hi there and welcome,

I am new to this forum and I am new to 7.
I knew that that's gonna bugs me prior to win7 installation, but due to problems with vista I decided to upgrade to better(?) 7.

Now in vista I had 3 rows in tray, now in 7 I have only two rows.
When I was checking 7 out as in virtual machine I've managed to make the space between icon smaller (now I don't even remember how I did it), however it was still displaying two rows of icons.

Is there any way perhaps using system tools to improve it?

This is my screeshot of win7:

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Right click the taskbar, unlock it, and drag it up a little more, then it will have 3 rows. Is that what you're wanting?

I appreciate your post, but I know I can do this, unfortunately I don't want to make the taskbar any bigger. The space between icons in tray is much greater then in vista, which I don't like. I know there is new feature underneath the icons as soon you move the mouse over the icon, but that's needless.
