Rumming XP Pro on a Packard Bell iConnect 1350 (800) using a 15" CRT monitor. We have a seperate log on for each member of the family and everybodies desktop is in 800x600 resolution. On my, my wifes and my daughters desktop, the taskbar is narrow and well defined with one line of text for the time. On my sons desktop (still in 800x600) his taskbar is wider, with two lines of text for time (and date) but his quickstart and notification area icons are badly defined and very "pixelly". Anyone know how he could have got it like this, and how to change it?
Right click on an empty part of the taskbar and check that it is not locked. Then hover the mouse over the top edge until the pointer changes to a double head arrow, hold the mouse down and drag to the size you wish. When you are pleased lock the bar again. You can change the icon size by right clicking on an empty part of the desktop, then properties, then appearances, then advance where you can adjust icon size, text size and other items
I've got the same problem as Simon 258 above. The taskbar icons are all very "pixelly" and generally look rubbish. I've recently changed from a CRT monitor on 1024x768 resolution to a DVI flat panel monitor on 1280 x 1024 resolution. But there has been no improvement: the icons on the toolbar/taskbar are still very poor quality.
Anyone know which tick in which box sorts this out?
