Windows 7: Faviconize Windows 7 Taskbar Buttons

Faviconize Windows 7 Taskbar Buttons

I like to use Sticky Notes. But it's taskbar button is always full width on the taskbar. This takes up too much room on the taskbar. Is there a way to faviconize it like you can tabs in some browsers? Is there an addon that I can install? I know nothing about Windows Registry settings. I always thought it was wise to leave them alone.

Thanks in advance. :)

Hello Dwight,

Not really, but here are some options you might see may help as a workaround.

Use small icons on the taskbar.

Another way works

I just close the Sticky notes app and it goes back to the normal button size. Then just open it again when I need to see the notes and they are still there. This is better than nothing.

Taskbar Buttons
Hi, In the theme Seven and a Half, I would like to remove the square border around the icons in the taskbar so that the only things that appear are the icons and the light indicating the active window. I couldn’t figure it out in WSB. Can someone help me? Rand Marks

How many of you combine taskbar buttons on Windows 7?
For some reasons, I feel it's much easier to see the names of the windows that are open on the taskbar rather than small icons that are tabbed. I think it's much faster and convenient. So why do most people always combine taskbar on Windows 7?
