Hello BTNH,

If you like, you could use large icons in Quick Launch for them to be the same size as the pinned taskbar icons. Step 7 in Option One of the tutorial below can help show you how to.
Quick Launch - Enable or Disable
If you wanted to keep using small icons, then you could resize the taskbar to increase it's height one more level to have another row of icons in Quick Launch.

Hope this helps,

Hi Brink, I will like to keep it the same height, I am guessing there is no way to do it. However, thank you for your alternate solutions.

Quick Launch bar
MS seem to have decided that their "pin applications to the taskbar" feature is a much better solution than the Quick Launch bar - otherwise surley they would not have annoyed all those who have been using the Quick Launch bar for years by removing it... I am getting used to the new taskbar in...

Quick Launch Bar
I heard that the Quick Launch Bar has been removed in Windows 7. I sure hope that isn't true. Maybe someone will write a third party app to replace it. I use it over a hundred times a day. I would miss it greatly.

Center Align Taskbar Icons
Hi, Does anyone know if there's a way to center-align the icons on the taskbar? It would look a million times better and help separate the icons from the start button. Thanks, Kev
