Taskbar Toolbar showing 3 small rows using Large Icons 2-line Taskbar

Q: Taskbar Toolbar showing 3 small rows using Large Icons 2-line Taskbar

This references showing Toolbar rows Icons Taskbar 3 2-line Taskbar Large small using Quick Launch Bar icons don't wrap even though there is room - a post by chillz which discovers a quot bug quot with the taskbar not resetting the row-sizing for toolbars when dragging the taskbar to the left then back to the bottom I for a while now have been using a custom quick-launch toolbar on my taskbar with the taskbar being unit-lines in height and having the taskbar on my secondary left monitor When I first set this up it showed lines of small icons in the toolbar and up to lines on the standard taskbar This was perfect because the toolbar didn't reset the order every time I launched an application contrary to how the pinned application system works With pinned applications no matter what position I drop the icon the order always resets and floats from place to place so that system of organizing icons is disgusting because you have apps between icons of apps that aren't running some times and other times the running applications are above and Taskbar Toolbar showing 3 small rows using Large Icons 2-line Taskbar below with or without grouping enabled The vertical display would be the ideal way for me to view unlaunched applications see aforementioned topic because they group together and launched apps come after in horizontal mode the taskbar is chaotic without a toolbar organizing the apps to one side but then you lose the functionality of the pinned-application system if you forfeit usage of that chaotic horizontal system in favor of how the vertical system works but in horizontal mode To the point After an update restart the toolbar reset and only showed lines despite there being more than enough room for rows of small icons I couldn't figure out what happened or what changed and then I read the aforementioned topic after some searching to find it actually worked Moving the taskbar to the left then back down resets the order so lines can be used on a line-unit height taskbar with large icons I would like to see several things fixed - Fix the chaotic organizing system of the horizontal taskbar to match the vertical display mode so pinned-apps are always on one side and use all lines while opened apps read like a book Other people will likely have a different opinion to this suggestion and I'd like to read them - Fix the toolbar icon organizational system so all space can be utilized without needing to move the taskbar each restart or update I have yet to restart since fixing the issue and I rarely restart as it is but others may not keep their pc running stressful on components to keep restarting Again I'd like to read others opinions on this but I'm sure most will agree on this point that unused space shouldn't be wasted Here we see all rows in my quick-launch toolbar Unfortunately without restarting or receiving a new update I can't reset the toolbar back to lines which is fantastic and I didn't take a screenshot prior to moving the taskbar to the left then back down but for simple effect imagine the top lines visibly the bottom invisible and an arrow on the right for extra icons and that is the default view You'll likely be able to repeat the effect if you don't have a toolbar and try it out

Hello there,

Yes; i am using ClassicShell, BUT i use the default Windows 8.1 Start button (cause i like the way it looks).

Thing is, when i change my taskbar icons to small, the size of the Start button is also scaled down. This looks out of place / ugly on the taskbar imo.

Does anyone here know if it is possible to use the original size and original Start button when small taskbar icons are used?

This is how it looks now:

Hi there. Don't know how to reduce the size, but here's a little program that one of the members named hb860 created to eliminate it from the taskbar. I've used it for quite some time and works great. Hope this helps you.

Hi, I was wondering if anyone knew how to set a custom icon size for the taskbar icons in Windows 7. I know you can select between large or small, however I'd like something in between those sizes (call it medium).

The large size takes up too much space, and the small size is a little small for my 15 inch high res laptop screen. Is there a way I can specify the icon size myself through the registry?

My guess would be that you are going to need some third party program to do this. But be careful> icon, cursor and screensaver programs frequently come with adware, spyware or other malware.

Hello everyone

I must have clicked accidently somewhere on my Desktop. So when some windows became undersized I tried to rectify by various means such as going into Display.

But I made things worse, for example, previously going into Add/Remove progams the text was 'normal' size (default). Now all the text in Add/Remove are small.

The same goes for every window I open, for example the 'Start', 'Search' boxes, the urls (http://) all small. I would say Font size is probably 2.

When I open Microsft Word it does not fill the Desktop as previous.

But when I type, the print comes out as normal.

Going online is also normal. But I notice programs do not open as quickly as before.

I have a toolbar on my taskbar titled "Programs". It has about eight folders in it. I made another toolbar, and placed it directly adjacent to the Programs toolbar, to obscure the eight folders and force it to be a dropdown menu.

Trouble is, as soon as I lock my taskbar, right next to the arrow that displays the eight items of my Programs toolbar in menu-form, one of the eight items is showing up as an icon, as if the other toolbar isn't close enough to the Programs toolbar in order to completely obscure the eight items.

Here's what I mean in graphic form:



It's bugging me to no end. Anyone else had this problem/resolved it?

A:Toolbar on taskbar should only be showing an arrow but is showing icon

Hello thewonkits, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I notice this happens when using small icons for a toolbar. If you like, you could unlock the taskbar, right click on the dotted separator line to the left of the two top far left toolbars (one at a time) click on View and Large Icons, then lock the taskbar to see if that may look ok to you. It will make the top row a bit bigger though.

Hopefully someone may know a better way to hide that bit of icon poking out when locked.

This is actually for a friend and I tried everything I could think of but nothing works. She recently installed WindowBlinds and as she was installing Avast it apparently happened (if this helps)

What happened is the icons in the System Tray, and the Quick Launch icons because the Start menu, and even the icons inside the Start menu have enlarged. They are probably 1.5x the size of the original and are also blurry. The time in the bottom right now includes the date also.

I thought her taskbar was moved up a notch, but it's as low as it can go. So thats not the problem. If you right-click the taskbar when it is unlocked and go to View, you can change the icons from large to small. It's on small. So something else happened.

My problem is that for the past week the buttons/icons in the taskbar have been about 1/2-1/4 smaller than they're supposed to be. No text even shows up next to them.

So far I've tried changing every visual setting I can think of (taskbar menu, dpi, res., visual effect, etc...) but nothing has worked. I compared my registry entries for explorer to my girlfriend who is also running vista and everything is exactly the same. It's really bugging me and I have no idea what happened.

I have object dock installed, but I've disabled it for now and nothing has changed.

I've searched all over the net for a solution but no one seems to have one, so any help would be really appreciated. Thanks.

A:Solved: Icons TOO LArge in Taskbar; How make smaller

ten: First, unlock the Task Bar if it is not already unlocked. Put your cursor on the top of the task bar, it will become a double arrow. Now, carefully left click and drag the task bar down until it becomes a single line of icons.
If you drag it down too far it will dissapear so be careful. You can get it back by just reversing the drag.
When you get it where you want it, lock it.

A:Weird taskbar problem when using small icons

Is your screen resolution set to its native resolution? Are the video card device drivers up to date?

I've tried to replicate the problem you are having on my computer, using every resolution supported, and I'm unable to duplicate the issue.

That is definitely weird for sure. Does it do it when you have the taskbar set to normal?

You could also create another account on your machine, just to make sure its not a profile issue on your computer.

That is a weird thing, I've never seen that before.

But it won't accept any more new ones if I try to drag some onto it.

Seems like it's still trying to pin the icons to others, and Not show them visually as completely separate icons in the bar.

What might I be doing wrong ?

BTW: also, any way of having the icon names Permanently displayed next to the icon on top or below the particular icon ?

Norton 360 icon runs double in my taskbar. It's the only program that does it. But also, my emails have been doubling in two of my web accounts. I have noticed it on my phone, and web. I've sought help, but no one seems to fix it. Really tired of the seeing double stuff. Could I have malware stuck somewhere? Is Conduit a culprit? My PC also likes to connect to an old network ID that has been deleted from my profiles. I had renamed the ID an my PC wants to keep that name. It's like it's mad at me or something.

I started up my computer logged into Windows and when I logged in the desktop was black and all I had was a mouse cursor. I opened task manager and I restarted "explorer.exe" but still nothing. I loaded up Google Chrome through the "Run New Task" option in the task manager to start looking up solutions.

I'm a new windows 10 latptop owner, previously used windows 7 with the classic theme. In both win 7 aero and in win 10, I dislike how the use of alt-tab and hovering over taskbar icons shows a series of miniatures images of windows. This is a terrible user interface --- all my windows are dense with text and could be scrolled to any point, so they can't be identified from the image. What I need to see are window titles. Or in the case of alt-tab, icons. Win 10 does show the titles but not stacked vertically, making them difficult to scan by eye. Same with icons---they are tiny little things in a sea of useless image.

So can I change the win 10 theme to show a vertical stack of window titles when hovering over the taskbar, and to show icons when doing alt-tab switching?

So, pretty self explanatory, I have this super bizarre problem, whenever I have my taskbar set to small icons in the properties, the taskbar icons are all wrong, for example, the Windows Task Manager will show up as Google Chrome (application seem to take a fancy for that icon) or Adobe Lightroom will show up as the Windows Picture Viewer. I have searched everywhere, and all I can find are cases of missing icons, which is not my problem. Perhaps this is linked to the other problem I am having. (Half of monitor is out of sync.)

My problem is specific to the unpinned icons in Windows 7 Home Edition 64-bit. The pinned applications stay put just fine. This problem started a couple of days ago.

It seems that, when I have multiple unpinned applications open, sometimes the icons of the unpinned applications move around at random times (it seems that the last active unpinned application moves to the right even though it wasn't the program opened last). And sometimes, when I have only one unpinned application on the taskbar, its icon seems to move from some slot to its right back in its position.

For some reason I suspect some malware or virus may be the cause.

I tried uninstalling ATI Radeon HD6450 drivers and reverting to an older version, as well as uninstalling every program that was installed since the day the problem started, to no avail. I found four malware in the meantime but even removing said malware did not solve my problem.

A:Unpinned taskbar icons moving around the taskbar

I don't think it's malware. If it's any consolation, my machine at work does this occasionally, and it's clean. I don't know what's causing it, but I've just chalked it up to being a quirk in Windows.

those 3rd party program looks nice, but since they are not part of the taskbar, windows that are opened block them, and even if they do come with functions to be always on top, they block the windows that are opened instead.

unless theres a 3rd party dock that can be part of the taskbar, im wont be interested in it.

I don't understand why it is when I create an internet shortcut on a Windows 7 desktop, most of the icons are "miniature", where as some of them are full size on the desktop. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason as to which shortcut will be small and which will be full size.

Please see the attached screenshot. The site "Brass Goggles" is full size and "seven forums" is miniature.

On XP, these same sites were all full size. I have no idea what is causing this erratic behavior. Any ideas?

But I didn't know how to fix it. Your suggestion of reducing the caption buttons fixed the problem and returned them to how they used to be. Many thanks!Derek says:Assuming your taskbar is already set for small icons you could try this:Right click desktop > Properties > Appearance > Advanced button.In the Item box select Caption Buttons. If you reduce the size figure it will reduce the size of both the Taskbar and the Active Title Bar (they are linked). As a by-product the size of the icons in the taskbar will reduce too.

Hi and welcome to the forums!

My first suggestion might be a bit complex but I'll suggest it anyway. This tutorial - Replace Vista's missing Computer desktop icon with a custom gadget on the Windows Sidebar | TechRepublic - details how to create a gadget to launch my computer. Now, this should theoretically work for any application and on windows 7. To could then launch your program through the newly created gadget.

If that is a little bit too difficult there is a program by the company Stardock called fences. Download here: Fences - Windows Desktop Organization Software. This allows you to organise your desktop more efficiently.

Hopefully one of these will solve your issue

Hey everyone right now I am currently stuck to finding a solution, If you take a look at my screenshot below you can see the start button hangs out over taskbar which I hate cause it interferes with whatever I'm doing usually so I was wondering if someone could pretty please help me out and either 1...

Give me a file with the correct size taskbar that I could just edit to my liking cause I also wanna change the orb to something different

or 2.

Make me a new custom start orb that is green themed like the rest of my desktop that fits inside the taskbar.

Thank you very much, any and all help is appreciated!!

Thanks,

A:StartButton for Small Taskbar

It looks like you have the "Use small icons" selected. This may be turned off by going to the task bar and right clicking on it. Select properties and clear the check from that option. Click apply.

Hi. This has been happening sometimes and I still wonder why it does this. I have Win 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

What happens is that at some point, when I click on a program, it will think as if I have the pointer pointed onto that program.

Here is a picture of what I mean:


I don't know why it happens at a certain point when I use my laptop for many hours. My only workaround is to end the explorer.exe task and re-open the processor.

I don't know it this happens to anyone else...

A:Have a small bug with the taskbar [explorer.exe]

Sorry for my confusion. You said, "What happens is that at some point, when I click on a program, it will think as if I have the pointer pointed onto that program." Which program were you clicking on in your picture? Was it Firefox or something else? If Firefox then I think that's a normal display to see the tooltip appear. You could try changing the "mouse hover time" to see if that makes any difference.

Mouse Hover Time - Change



   Warning
This method contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. The easiest way is to create a new system restore point before editing the registry.


This previous Forum thread may also provide some help:

Removing/Delaying Tooltips

There's another tooltip setting called AutoPopDelay. This is set to a default value of 5000 milliseconds (5 seconds) and that's how long the tooltip stays displayed. This is what I could find on changing the AutoPopDelay setting:

ToolTip.AutoPopDelay Property (System.Windows.Forms)

But if you were clicking on some other program (not Firefox) and the Mozilla Firefox tooltip appeared, another possibility (since you say this happens after using your laptop for many hours) is overheating. Make sure your laptop's vents are free from dust build up and nothing is obstructing the airflow. Make sure your laptop is on a firm surface and not a pillow, bedspread, or even your lap. A cooling pad may help to lower temperatures.

If my lingo is right, this question concerns the toolbar on the Taskbar. Right-click on the Taskbar, Toolbars, New
Toolbar. At that point, I get
"C:\Users\Barak\Documents\Programs\Programs refers to a location that is unavailable . . . "
Explorer also opens to Libraries>Documents>Programs>Programs which notes "This folder is unavailable."
How do I create a new toolbar?

And a bonus - too petty for its own post . . .
In all previous versions of Windows the Close\Restore\Minimize buttons (top right) were in identical positions. I could leave my mouse in one position, click ten times, and minimize ten apps. Not in W8. Those icons? are different sizes so some clicks minimize, some restore, and some are to the left of Minimize. Any way to get them all the same size?

In this window, navigate to the folder from which you want to create the toolbar and click Select folder in the dialog. If something prevents you from doing this, provide a screenshot or record your actions with psr (type on the start screen).
As for the second questions, it's a good idea to start a separate thread and provide visuals to support the text description, as it's not completely clear what's going on.

Just got a new computer and am slowly adjusting to Windows 8. Was quite unhappy however, when I downloaded and opened Google Chrome, only to find everything appearing smaller than normal. Pretty much everything from the taskbar to the actual text on the screen is a good deal smaller than it should be. Text can be zoomed in on, but this does nothing for the taskbar, and I would rather not have to zoom in as this can upset the formatting on certain sites. 
After doing some research online many recommend enabling HiDPI support off of chrome://flags. However, firstly I am uncertain whether my display is hiDPI, secondly when I go to the chrome://flags page the HiDPI support option was nowhere to be found.

Hi all,
Just migrated from XP to 7 and one thing I'd like to do is set up my desktop the way it was in XP. I've done just about all the tweaks to accomplish that, but 7 won't let me add a toolbar to the top of the screen as I could in XP. I don't like the dock that came with this computer and I'd rather make my own toolbar. Any way to achieve this? Thanks.

PS. I'm not talking about moving the taskbar or quickbar to the top of the screen. This would be a separate toolbar with a folder as it's contents.

A:Language toolbar on taskbar

The Language Bar is a part of windows Office. To remove it you have to go into add/remove programs and do a "change" then add/remove features. Under Office Tools make sure to uncheck the Language Settings Tool (also go through all of the other stuff that is installing and make sure that "Spanish" and "French" are unchecked. I think it auto installs the language bar if you install any additional languages.

I've had Windows 7 for about 10 Days.One of the first things I did was create a quick launch section on the task bar. Had about 8 icons in this quick launch and everything worked fine for about 5 days.Then the quick launch area on the tool bar just vanished. The rest of the tool bar is still there and works just fine.I thought I would just create a new toolbar and start over, however when I click on the "tooolbars>new toolbar" up pops the Explorer " libraries>documents" page. This page also pops up if I try to pin anything to the task bar.EG I click and drag an icon to the task bar,click "pin to taskbar" and instead of the icon showing up a copy of "libraries" folder appears instead.
Would appreciate any suggestions.

I've just moved up from Windows XP Pro to Windows 7 Ultimate. Some probs but reasonably manageable so far.
One thing bugs me. With XP, I've liked to have a taskbar autohiding at the bottom of my screen, and a toolbar autohiding at the right-hand side in which I keep shortcuts to all my favourite applications and some folders/files.
When I right-click to open a new toolbar, it gets added as an adjunct to the existing taskbar at bottom of screen. I can't physically separate it.
Is this a Windows 7 thing? Or am I missing something really obvious? I've clicked the 'don't merge' and that doesn't seem to do anything to resolve this.

I created a few shortcuts from chrome and added them to my Taskbar for ease of use.

I created one for each of my multiple Gmail accounts etc and I changed their icons to something so I can identify which was which. The shortcut's took the icon and worked fine for a short period than I noticed every time I click on the icon after changing the default icon to my new one It would change the icon back to Gmails default one.

Is there a way to prevent this from happening? Hope I explained it properly.

A:TaskBar Icons Constantly Changing My Icons For Chrome any Help?

I noticed the same problem. I think the solution is to make the shortcut read only before you pin it to the task bar. I did this a few days ago and they seem to be keeping my new icon.
If you later want to unpin the shortcut from the taskbar you will need to remove the readonly check from the taskbar shortcut properties. Although it will unpin without doing this you will be left with the shortcut in the real folder and have to go there to physically delete it.

C:\Users\(user name)\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch\User Pinned\TaskBar

Up until yesterday I had a neat vertical dotted line separating some of my folders in the taskbar. Suddenly it disappeared, as did three of my folders. I've put the folders back but want to keep them apart from others and can't remember how I created the line. I've Googled this numerous times but can only find the empty folder solution which I can't seem to make work.

Can anybody please tell me in simple terms how to reinstall the separator?

I have a problem with my taskbar. There is a blank toolbar I can't seem to get rid of. Here's what it looks like:

The blank toolbar is between the Firefox and Start button.

Here is what the Toolbar menu looks like:

As you can see, there are no toolbars on.

I was wondering if someone knew why part of the first icon on my custom toolbars displays when I lock the taskbar (see pic - I've highlighted the partial icons in red). I've tried sqeezing them as close together before I lock the taskbar, but that's doesn't solve the problem. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
