Jumplist width too short

Hello,

my jumplists are too narrow to display icons on the left (see attachment). Is there any way how to fix this?

You could try these;

7stacks | Alastria Software

True Launch Bar • Superior replacement for standard Quick Launch

I use the true launch bar and am very happy indeed with it.

I've not seen this issue before. The questions that occur are:

1) Did this issue exist from the installation or is it a new development?
2) Have you installed any 3rd party themes?
3) Have you changed any fonts for system (i.e., tooltips, etc.) or registry or other hacks?

Other than that, here is a link to the Jump List tutorials on this site. Resetting the Jump List may help:

Hello, thanks for response. Yeah, I've tried one thing in registers: Windows doesn't allow to have Windows 7 taskbar (the one with big icons) and not to stack windows at the same time (the "Hide labels, never combine" option), so I've added a registry key with name "MinWidth" and value I think 56. But because I didn't get used to new taskbar anyway, I changed it back to classic and deleted the value from registry. I don't know if that applies to this issue, but that's the only thing.

all the best,
MC

It's possible that this could be part of your issue. I've uploaded 2 minwidth reg files. One turns it on, the other off. Try running 'MinWidth_Turn On...' first (I'm using this one right now without issue). See if that solves your problem (and gives you non-stacking icons as well). If it doesn't, try the MinWidth_Turn Off" file.

It should be noted that I have 'Use small icons' option checked in the Taskbar and Start Menu Properties dialog (Taskbar tab) with 'Show Text' turned off. Again, this is with the MinWidth hack in place.

You should, as always, back up your registry before making any changes, as per this tutorial:

Thanks, jumplists are now okay, but I can't revert taskbar's settings back to "Never combine (and never hide labels)" using your turn off script.

Thanks for help!
