In this super short tutorial, you will find out how to make Windows taskbar smaller. You probably saw it somewhere and thought it looked cool, or this might be the first time you hear about such a thing. Either the case, this is how you do it.

Why should you do it

  • If you are using a device with a smaller screen, like a laptop, extra space will be very useful
  • You can never have enough space
  • It’s a good alternative to making taskbar autohide, which I also find super annoying to use
  • It looks better than the default taskbar
  • There was no need for the taskbar to be so big in the first place

How to make Windows taskbar smaller

  1. Right-click on the Windows taskbar
  2. From the pop-up menu select Taskbar Settings
    Taskbar menu
  3. In the new window, switch Use small taskbar buttons option to On
    Taskbar settings - Use small taskbar buttons

That’s it! Congratulations, you just made your Windows taskbar smaller! 😀
