Windows 7: Taskbar thickness

21 May 2010   #1

Taskbar thickness

Hi ! First of all, sorry for my bad english

I recently installed Win7. I put my taskbar at the right edge of my primary monitor (Which is on the left). Like that, the taskbar is between my 2 monitors. Here is a partial screenshot :

I've done that for ages, on every OS i used (98, xp, ubuntu...)

So, I made the taskbar as thin as Windows allows me, but it's still too thick in my opinion. I don't need all these spaces next to my icons.
I'd prefer something like that :

Is there any way I can do that, with a third party application ? I searched on google, this forum and other forums, and couldn't find nothing.

Ho, and while i'm here, is it possible to remove the stickynotes from the taskbar ?

Thanks !

Hi there,

Not sure about making the Taskbar thinner than Win7 normally allows, but you can remove Sticky Notes by right-clicking and selecting "Unpin this program from Taskbar".
