Taskbar Buttons too large

Specs: Windows XP

Thank you Derek! I found this thread because suddenly my taskbar buttons In noticed were larger. I must have changed something inadvertantly. 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.

Derek had been doing that kind of good work here for close to 20 years.

"close to 20 years"
Maybe it "seems" like that to others LOL, but actually I didn't come along until mid 1999 and initially it was to ask a question. For that matter SkipCox, your name has been rightly cemented in for quite a while on these boards.

Still, it's always good for forum regulars to find that some old fix is still of value. Some of the oldest threads have recently been purged from the forum.

Thanks galet09.
