    Is there anyway to change the icon spacing and width in taskbar? I've set the taskbar properties to combine icons when it's full, now the icon is even wider, is there any way to adjust it without messing with registry?

    I'm using 7+ Taskbar Tweaker, it provides some control over icons in the taskbar (e. g. reduce spacing).

    Works under 7, 8 and 8.1, despite the name.

    same in 8.1 but it does not reduce the icons in width relative to height but the entire taskbar gets smaller and icons remain as were before

    since this is a dynamic displaying these taskbar icons in terms of width, I'm not sure if this can be altered to a static value. Guess some junkees have a solution somewhere :D
