vertical taskbar icons in 2 columns, possible?

As you can see the attached picture, in vertical taskbar you can't see icons in 2 columns, even if you pull the taskbar to middle of screen

more explain: if your icons in horizontal taskbar were full and you make the taskbar bigger you can see that icons goes in 2 rows, but vertical taskbar didn't work like that. (stupid windows )

sorry if i not explaied very well, my english is not very good.

have you any idea?

Welcome to Seven Forums . Sorry, it is somewhat unclear to me by your pictures what you have/want. If you mean icons of items pinned to the taskbar, then I believe they do grow to fill the space. It is possible to change their width to a certain extent

Taskbar - Change Icon Button Width Size

What settings do you currently have for taskbar buttons in Taskbar and Start Menu properties?

I can't say for sure, it was a possibility. It seems unlikely after looking at those threads. Looks like their folder method may be the only way. A Guy

System Tray icons on vertical taskbar.
This is one of those things that could be worded in so many ways, there may be a solution out there but I have no idea what phrasing may have been used in such a case.

taskbar doesn't stack when vertical?
Take a look at the following pics. there's the same number of apps in the taskbar, but when vertically it only scrolls when overfilled, even when you stretch the taskbar for more room. I find this stupid because when it's vertical that's when you need the stacking feature more.

Show Icons as Vertical List
Hi, How can I get the icons in the taskbar to show as a vertical list instead of a horizontal list, without having to move the taskbar to the left or right of the screen? It would be great if the list came up in the same way as it does when you right-click on the icon. I have many Excel files...
