Taskbar icon size

If you have many open programs, they may clutter your taskbar too much. With this plug-in, you can reduce the size each entry needs inside the taskbar.

Just enter the size, how big the items in your taskbar should be. A good value is "-285" which works for most computers and only shows the icons of the running programs (no text) but depending on your computer, you might even need to decrease this value (e.g. "-1000"). You must restart Windows for this change to take effect.

Generally, you should adjust this value to match your Taskbar size (trial and error may be necessary):

Taskbar size in pixel: 17   This value: -270
Taskbar size in pixel: 18   This value: -285
Taskbar size in pixel: 19   This value: -300
Taskbar size in pixel: 20   This value: -315
Taskbar size in pixel: 21   This value: -335
Taskbar minimum size:     This value: -450 (in my tests).

The Taskbar size can be changed from: Control Panel > Display > Appearance > Item: > Active Title Bar > push the up or down arrows and peek at the Size: box until it looks to your liking > click OK.

To restore the original size, just clear the field.

In Registry: HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics\MinWidth

So, this bird walks into a store…   
… and he steals a bag of Doritos and walks out.
A seagull in Scotland has developed the habit of stealing chips from a neighborhood shop.
The seagull waits until the shopkeeper isn’t looking (so a camera was installed), and then walks into the store and grabs a snack-size bag of Doritos.
Once outside, the bag gets ripped open and becomes a feast, for other birds!
The seagull’s shoplifting started early this month, when he first swooped into the
store in Aberdeen, Scotland, and helped himself to a bag of chips.
Since then, he’s become a “regular”. He always takes the same type of chips.
Customers have begun paying for the seagull’s stolen bags of chips,… because they think it’s so funny!

Help Wanted-might be right for you damian ;D

Today is the anniversary of PacMan. On October 10, 1979 this video game was first released in Japan and became a classic hit. The original game name for the US release was planned as Puck Man, but the distributors realized that many people would erase part of the first letter, so PacMan name was used instead, which became classic and virtually synonymous with video games.
