    how to enable small icons in taskbar menu using registry tweak ?


    Hi all.
    I have a simple question how to reduce the taskbar menu icons using regedit
    For now they are big to me.
    Of course I know how to reduce the taskbar menu icons but I want to reduce them using registry.
    Is there any trick to do this?
    Maybe someone you know and you can help?

    Hello Polas, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    The way you are showing is how to change the size of the icons on your desktop, but not on the taskbar.


    OPTION TWO or THREE in the tutorial below can show you how to change the taskbar icons to be large or small using the registry. It's the same in Windows 8.
