Getting a smaller Windows 7 taskbar – the setting

If you need more screen real-estate (particularly if using a Netbook), you might want to reduce the size of your taskbar in Windows 7.

It’s pretty easy to do:

  1. right-click on an empty area of the task bar
  2. choose “Properties”
  3. select the “Use small icons” checkbox
  4. click “Apply”

The task bar will shrink. Program icons will change to the size of the icons in your notification area. Only the time will display in the far right (the date will disappear because there’s no room for it below the time anymore, although you can always mouse over the time to see the date).
