How do I change the width of just the pinned icons in the taskbar

How do I change the width of just the pinned icons in the taskbar, and not mess with the size of the programs that I have open?
Currently all my pinned icons are huge, and are about a 1/4 of the way across the task bar.

Right Click on the task bar & select Properties, on the window that opens tick Use Small Icons which is under the Task Bar tab, then select Apply & see if the results suit you.

Second option I have already done

Third option, not what I am looking to do.

This website may help you. One of the methods requires changing some items in the Registry so do exercise care. It would be a good idea to back up the Registry before you do anything.
