    I asked in the main 10056 thread couple of times. But since there are a lot of useless posts, it doesn't get any attention.

    After installing 10056, I changed my taskbar icon style to smaller icons.

    However, I realized that the height of the taskbar doesn't shrink as you make icons smaller. It remains same as it used to be.

    Please check image below


    It seems problem persists because of Windows icon and Searchbox. As others become smaller, windows icon doesn't.

    So we need to find a way to make the windows button and Searchbox smaller.

    Maybe it's unfinished feature or maybe related to tablet mode. I really don't know why is that.
    I checked too and see when you change the taskbar icons to small, the height of the taskbar shrink in only one millimeter.

    Don't forget that this build and another are beta.

    I have the main taskbar double height so time-day-day show up in notification are. If I switch to small icons I notice what cuteee mentioned, very small reduction in taskbar size.
    This is with a clean install of 10056.

    @cuteee - tight on - pre-release software.
