Windows 7: How to make the taskbar icons bigger?

How to make the taskbar icons bigger?

hi
does anyone know how I could make the icons on the taskbar bigger..
the only option under 'right click' -> 'properties' is to make them smaller..
the other option under "Control Panel -> Appearance and Personalization -> Display" makes everything big..
I'd love some help like a reg edit I could do or anything really...
I've googled forever with no results..

I would also like to know how to customize the icon size. Personally I want a size inbetween the small and large sizes.

There is no supported way to do this. Small icon mode is a toggle. There is no way to set a custom size.

Right click the taskbar/unlock taskbar/view/select large icons.

There doesn't seem to be any way to set a custom size, only small or large... lame.

Btw did has anyone else notice the shadows on small sized icons in the taskbar are kind of pixelated and crooked?

You need to:
Right click taskbar ---> properties ---> taskbar buttons ---> change it to combine when taskbar is full ---> hit apply

I've just had a look, and it seems there is a way to do this.

I haven't tried it myself yet, but I'll post here again either way.
