  1. How to reduce width of the taskbar buttons?


    Hello,

    This is in reference to this tutorial.

    What I want to do is to reduce the width of the taskbar buttons even further...that is, even shorter width than what's shown as size 38 in that tutorial. I want the buttons in my taskbar to show their respective icons along with only 3-4 characters of text.

    I remember that I accomplished this in my previous Windows installation (Windows 7 (64-bit)), using the same method as discussed in that tutorial with some value (which I can't recall). But somehow, I can't seem to make it happen in Windows 10.

    Some of the values I've tried are: 10, 52,54, 55, 58 and a few more.

    Please suggest a suitable value/method to make it happen in my Windows 10.

    :)

  2. Increase width of Show Desktop button in taskbar

    For some reason the width of the "show desktop" button on the taskbar in win10 has been reduced to a stupid amount meaning it's very difficult to find and click it (I have 2 monitors so I can't just flick over to the bottom left corner).

    How can I increase the width of the "show desktop" button the taskbar so a human can find it?

    Taskbar in Windows 10

    I have a HP Desktop and a HP laptop. Both are updated to Windows 10 Pro Creators Update, and the last patch was this June, 13, 2017.

    I use the taskbar but with double width (the taskbar is nothing else but a window) and hiding, and it was locked. Since a couple of weeks, whenever I restart or start the PC or the laptop the taskbar is reduced to single width. I have to unlock it to change
    it back to double width. Since some days, I do not lock it anymore, which apparently helps to keep the double width when restarted rep. started. In most restarts/starts it helps but not always.

    I did research about it but cannot find a solution at all. I assume it is some glitch.
