View Full Version : Tray Icons

Just sorting out some problems on a HP Laptop running Vista Home.
The icons in the taskbar notification area are stacked 2 rows high & are smaller than the quick launch icons which are in a single row.

Do you want the taskbar icons to be the same size as the quick launch?

Yes & in a single row.

(This is in Windows 7, but I think they are similar)

Right click task bar / Properties / Look around for task bar option that has 'Use Small Icons'

Not sure about the second portion

I've already had a good look for that type of thing.
I am thinking this is the result of some 3rd party software the user has had running.
I have removed several trojans & 2 virus's from it to get it to run properly.
It needs updates but I'm almost through my data cap for this month.

Try this - unlock the taskbar, disable QL and any toolbars (right click, untick anything that's ticked) and drag the task bar downward. Then re-enable the QL and any toolbars you want.
