Nancy wants to know how to make her taskbar icons smaller on Windows 7 taskbar
I just got a new Windows 7 computer. It’s taking me a while to get used to it, but it’s seems very nice. One thing I don’t like is the huge icons on the taskbar – is there a way to make them smaller, like the ones on my old Windows XP computer? Can you help?

1. Right click on windows 7 Start Menu button and select Properties

2. Click the taskbar tab and check the option that says “Use Small Icons”

3. Click Apply – once you’ve clicked “Apply” – you’ll see that all your Taskbar icons are now smaller (see image below).

Enjoy Windows 7 with smaller taskbar icons.
