thinner taskbar?

How can I change the size of the taskbar without changing the resolution? I like the thinness of the bar at 1152x864, but I want to stay at 1024x768. I did some looking around, but couldn't find an answer.

The bar is relative to the screen size so it is most likely as thin as its going to get. You can, however, make it thicker.

I did have it twice as thick for a while, but I just made some pretty major changes to my GUI, and now it's back to the thinnest I can make it.

You can open the .msstyle file in StyleBuilder and decrease the pixel height of the taskbar.
I don't think there's any other way of going about doing this.

You can change the taskbar size along with the Active Title bar size in display properties, appearence, advanced. Play around with size and font size settings for the title bar and it will change the taskbar size, too.

That's just the screenshot - I like 1280 x 1024
With all the programs on my PC, it's as tidy as it gets. Let's have a look at how tidy and user friendly your desktop is.:D

lol - I didn't even know. Learn new things every day :D
This screenshot show how empty my desktop is. No hassle of having to always go to the desktop for a shortcut. More useful to have everything on the taskbar which is always handy.:)
