Hi JeanLuc71, welcome to the forums.

You could try the 'Background Eraser' tool (click & hold on the 'eraser' tool) and it should then make the background transparent if you created the initial file with transparent background.

Hope it helps

I'm not sure if it's possible to do that.. I think the small icon mode is to make the taskbar look like what it was in vista...

just a suggestion
maybe...you could try editting the start orb image and make it smaller in scale.. to fit the small taskbar.. but it might affect the start orb in large icons mode... I havent tried it so don't take my word for it..
