In Windows 7, the usual size of the Windows Taskbar is a bit larger than usual. This takes some extra space at the bottom of the computer screen. This makes selecting the applications easier as the buttons are bigger. However for those who are using smaller screens this may be a bit annoying as it takes more space on the screen. If you want you can make the size of the taskbar smaller by following the steps below.
- In a blank space in the taskbar right click and select properties.
- You will see the ‘Taskbar and Start Menu Properties’ dialog box with many tabs.
- Here click ‘Use small icons’ and select it.
- Now click OK and close the dialog box.
