You right click on the "Start Button" bottom left. I have to go make chilli so I can't answer any more questions ATM.
Great! Thanks!

PS. Does this mean that SevenForums will slowly die?
Our sister site Vista Forums is still going strong now when we just got a third Windows OS after Vista.
And Win 7 is more popular than Vista so Seven Forums isn't going anywhere.

Yea I realize that question is does the action center listings restrict it to the size he's showing or did he make it that big,
Feeling tells me it's the default width size like in windows 7 and can't be reduced :/

I'm still doing girly file shifting and then a girly shadow copying of 7 and 8.1 to an external hdd,
Possibly tonight I'll have 10 in hand

I also like the task bar on the left of the screen. It takes up less screen vertical height that way and I can leave it up permanently which is far more convenient that a disappearing taskbar.

Can the task bar width (or height, depending on where one puts it) be adjusted?

Yes you unlock the taskbar and then drag it to how big you want them lock it again.
