How to make bar smaller across bottom

Take a look at the bar across the bottom of the picture and someone tell me how to make in narrower. There are two of course and if there were one would pretty much take care of the problem. Thanks in advance. Are these tool bars or task bars and what is the difference.

Hello there.

Place the cursor on the edge of the taskbar, click it and drag it until you find it comfortable, then, right click the taskbar and click "Lock the taskbar", that's it
