Windows 7: Faviconize Windows 7 Taskbar Buttons

Faviconize Windows 7 Taskbar Buttons

I like to use Sticky Notes. But it's taskbar button is always full width on the taskbar. This takes up too much room on the taskbar. Is there a way to faviconize it like you can tabs in some browsers? Is there an addon that I can install? I know nothing about Windows Registry settings. I always thought it was wise to leave them alone.

Thanks in advance.

Hello Dwight,

Not really, but here are some options you might see may help as a workaround.

Use small icons on the taskbar.

Another way works

I just close the Sticky notes app and it goes back to the normal button size. Then just open it again when I need to see the notes and they are still there. This is better than nothing.
