    Big bar + date

    If you want the date, you can make your taskbar larger - then it will show the date, even if you have small icons.

    Like attached:

    I do prefer the task bar on the right hand though ever since I'm used to having a netbook.

    windows 7 ultimate 32bit

    I'm using windows 7 ultimate 32 bit with ie9. I've tried all of the tips for increasing the icon size on the taskbar but none of them work. Do you have any other suggestions on how to make them larger?

    Hello Paty, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    Could you post a screenshot of your taskbar with the icons you want to increase the size of outlined just to help make sure these are the same icons that the tutorial are referring to?

    If they are not, then we may be able to suggest something else that may work instead. :)

    To toggle the size of the toolbar within the user's account, you could create a batch file from this:
    reg query HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced /v TaskbarSmallIcons | find "0x0"
    If %ERRORLEVEL% == 0 goto turnon
    IF %ERRORLEVEL% == 1 goto turnoff
    goto end
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced" /v TaskbarSmallIcons /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
    goto end
    reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced" /v TaskbarSmallIcons /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
    goto end
    taskkill /f /im explorer.exe
    start explorer.exe
    To make the size of the toolbar smaller for a user from a separate administrator account use this:
    reg.exe load HKLM\TempHive "C:\Documents and Settings\User\NTUSER.DAT"
    reg add "HKLM\TempHive\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced" /v TaskbarSmallIcons /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
    reg.exe unload HKLM\TempHive
    Just change "User" to whatever the name of the user (or user folder name) is. I'm not sure about the clock issue.
