Windows 7 Taskbar Iconizer by SuprVillain Windows 7 Taskbar Iconizer by SuprVillain
With one simple click, you can turn your Taskbar in to a Windows 7 like Iconized Taskbar, also, you can revert the changes.

This app was inspired by Vishal Gupta, from [link] .

UPDATE: Fixed an error with the restore feature.
Thanks go to :iconexglade: for helping out.
let this be a lesson, never code when your tired.

NOTE!!!
This message is for everyone, ok?
As i have said over and over and OVER again, i have shrunk the box down as much as possible. any text / whatever that you may have still in the box is due to the skin that your using.

If you have Text in the box still, then use another skin. Sorry to be so damn blunt, but if you skim through just the comments on the page, you will see that a lot of people have complained about it, and as i point out every time, it is not my fault.

please do not blame me, change your skin, or blame the author of the skin.

i know how to make taskbar icons bigger, leaving the rest of the icons. Use ViGlance
[link]
and it iconises and makes it look like 7 (but you need the win 7 theme)
go to
[link]
for my overview thing for getting vista to look like 7 (including non-windows themes and the Win7 theme)

My Vista looks more like 7...

ViGlance (for iconiser / groups)
[link]
Ignore the "for XP", it works in Vista

VistaGlazz (for non-Windows themes)
[link]

Windows 7 Theme

It only makes them icons. I think they should work out a re-sizer for it.

cant be done, the size is hard-wired in to the operating system. sadly, if you want 32x32 sized icons in the task bar, then your going to have to use Windows 7 only.

ViGlance can icon-resize, but it has to be running all the time.

Works on XP and Vista.

that is as big as they get, the app just shrinks the text area of the buttons.

This will not work with my Windows 7 Ultimate, i want that vista taskbar to my w7, i hate that in w7 there's only icons, it always mess up my head!

I tried to change minwidth but it didn't change anything..
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics\MinWidth (154)

But after this it didn't gave me vista taskbar to my w7...now there's still only icons... :(

Same here...
Have you been able to reproduce the bug? Have you seen the linked pic that shows the bug?
You didn't reply to the above msgs :(

Your hack did only modify HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics, MinWidth value?

:iconsuprvillain:
SuprVillain Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2009  Hobbyist Artist
yes, just that one value. change it back to 1000.

Default was 154, but changing it makes no difference: icons used for minimized windows on the toolbar are wrong.

As I said I use Vista Home Premium and right after using this hack (Win7 type, log-off, re-login and then XP/Vista type, log-off, re-login) folders don't show anymore the expected icons for taskbar window buttons.

This hack had nothing to do with the icons. you may have used something else that messed with your icons.

Your hack corrupted something in my Vista Home Premium: now after a while, special iconified windows (like azure-green Music etc.) will look like this [link] instead of keeping its original aspect as it did before!!

Please, provide a fix!!
