In an earlier tip we covered how you can 'Pin' application shortcuts to the task bar for quick access. Trouble is, it does consume more of the taskbar real estate than most would like.

There is a way however to make the whole thing more manageable by reducing the size of those icons.

Here's How:

Right click on the[b:14vdtluu] Start [/b:14vdtluu]button and select [b:14vdtluu]Properties[/b:14vdtluu]. Now click on the [b:14vdtluu]Taskbar[/b:14vdtluu] tab and enable the option to [b:14vdtluu]Use small icons[/b:14vdtluu]. Click [b:14vdtluu]OK[/b:14vdtluu] and you're all done.
