Hi Merlin, like any other box in 'windows' if you put your cursor over the edge of the taskbar, you will see a double headed arrow. Hold down the left click switch and drag the taskbar to the size that you want. release the left click and you're there. best of luck, John.

bring your cursor down to the task bar and slowly hover over the upper side of the bar until your cursor turns into a double ended arrow. Then hold left mouse button down and crush the bar to correct size.
