    Changing Entire Taskbar Height?


    Is there a way I can change the whole taskbar's height through regedit for a more customized setting? Here's some images to better understand what I'm trying to do:

    What my taskbar looks like now:
    Click image for larger version

    What my taskbar looks w/ small icons:
    Click image for larger version

    Are those the only two options or can I adjust the height so it's in-between the two? (Mainly so I can see the date underneath the time w/ small icons.)

    Thanks in advance

    Hello Thummel,

    If you like, you could unlock the taskbar, drag the taskbar to change it's height, then lock the taskbar when finished.

    Thank you for your response! I tried doing that but it just makes everything look out of place. There isn't an registry edit I can do to customize it to be more "exact"?

    I'm afraid not. It sizes it per level the same way as dragging the taskbar to the height level you want.
