Well one way is to use large icons.That increases the size of the taskbar including that button.Just right click on the taskbar and select properties and choose the icon size,if it is too big for you then switch back to small icons.
Hope that helps.

Re enable the Quick Launch, then simply add/remove what you do not need from it (I left Show Desktop+Flip 3D) and drag it to right of Taskbar or leave at left.

How is it not easy to click on, you can do it with your eyes closed.

I use three monitors on my PC and have the taskbar on the middle screen, with the other two monitors higher up on the wall, when your using small icons you tend to find it hard because I always seem to go 1mm the button and I end up being pushed onto another screen :P

If that is the case, I would consider raising the two side monitors a bit under display settings. This should allow your mouse to catch when you point it down to the bottom right of the middle screen, and should not allow it to pass over to the adjacent screen..

You don't even have to click the show desktop button...just hover the mouse over it.

Show Desktop button
I just noticed that my 'Show Desktop' button looks bigger than before. It's like double wide. Not that I'm complaining, just wondering how it changed size like that. I kinda like it.
