I did a search and found a older thread with no real answers. So with that said, I find it odd that Microsoft didn't think that having such a wide, small icon enabled, vertical taskbar was kind of, well, dumb. Netbooks are pretty popular, so maybe it'll be fixed in the future. Maybe.
Anyway, I understand that there is no built-in method to get a thin vertical taskbar (preferably with small icons enabled) in Windows 7. So is there any way to use a resource editor to get that result using the default graphics?

There's a simpler way to get a narrow vertical taskbar. Here's how you do it.
- In the taskbar properties, enable autohide, check "Use small icons", select "Always hide, combine labels". Make the vertical taskbar as thin as possible.
- Open the start menu, type services.msc. Right-click and restart the "Window Management Instrumentation" service.
Of course, logging out reverts the changes, so you have to restart the service each time if you want the thin taskbar again.
