    Yep, it changes the taskbar width or height by any level you like. Please try again.

    Are you saying that when you unlock the taskbar and keep dragging it up, you are not able to increase it's height one level at a time to say double, triple, quadrouple it's default one level height?

    I find it hard to believe if you are not able to.

    ah yes, i can do that, but the problem is the taskbar is too big now and i can only get it to about 3/4 inch high and that is as small as i can move it. my icons look way out of place as they are so small.

    OK. How does it look using large icons instead of small?
