Tiny Open Window Icons In Taskbar

Hello there,
OK, i've obviously just clicked something which I didn't mean to and i'm sure this is asked all the time but why are my icons for all my open windows really small boxes and at the right hand side of the taskbar?

I'm sure it wasn't like that when I first started up vista today but it is now and it's soooo annoying.

Thanks for any help. =)

Right-click an empty area of the Taskbar and unlock it. This is difficult to explain but starting on the left side let the mouse pointer hover on the bar until a double-headed arrow appears then drag it left. Finally, right-click the Taskbar and lock it.

I had this problem to on my laptop. Thought it was to do with recent windows upgrades but my vista desktop was unaffected. The change is the most awkward thing to use, and im just going to try Burrwalnuts suggestion. Watch this space
