    Default Task bar Icons

    Hello everybody, I have a question regarding tweaking vista to look like Windows 7. Everything is done but I am struggling to find out how or if I can change the size of the Icons. see img

    Right click on the taskbar and unlock it, then when you right click on it again you should see View, small icons - large icons

    Sorry I didn't mean the 'Quick Launch' icons I meant the running program icons.

    It looks like you can't. However on page two of this thread there is a link to a large button utility.

    Thanks for getting back to me roraniel but it looks like your right. I am a bit disappointed though as its the only thing that doesn't look right with this theme, I suppose I can live with it though lol. JR.

    The reason for this is that "Quick Launch" does not really exist in Windows7. You only get it if you apply a tweak (which I did as you see below). The Icons in the taskbar serve both as quick launch and for the running process. For Vista that had to be rearranged, else it would be difficult to tell the Firefox Quick Launch icon in your picture from the Firefox running process icon. See this picture how it looks in my W7.
