    TASKBAR

    Hi Patricia,

    Right click your Taskbar and make sure 'Lock the Taskbar' is not ticked, if it is untick it

    Drag the top of the Taskbar down as far as it goes

    If you still need the Taskbar smaller, right click the Taskbar and choose 'Taskbar Settings

    On the Settings Page, turn on 'Use Small Taskbar Buttons'

    Close the Settings App

    When finished, right click the Taskbar and choose 'Lock the Taskbar'

    That's about it !

  3. how to eliminate up/down arrows in taskbar and show all icons

    You need to resize the Taskbar.

    Right click the Taskbar, then uncheck the lock taskbar

    Place your mouse pointer at the edge the drag it up.

    Also, you can try using small icons on the Taskbar to accomodate more icons.

    Right click the Taskbar

    Click Taskbar settings

    Under Taskbar, click User small taskbar buttons.

    Taskbar

    Just find the folder and drag it down. It will show the normal File Explorer icon.
