    You will be able to change the size of the taskbar of a windows computer. You will also be able to change the alignment of the taskbar from a vertical position to a horizontal position and vice versa. To change the size of the task bar you need to right click on the empty space on the taskbar. Now If the Taskbar is locked, you need to unlock it first. Then point the mouse at the edge of the taskbar until the mouse pointer changes into a double headed arrow. Now drag the border of the taskbar to the size that you want to and also to the direction you want to. Now the size and the alignment of the taskbar would be changed by itself.

    Yes, you can do that easily.......
    Just take the mouse on taskbar....And drag it whichever position you want. It can be horizontal(lower or upper side) or vertical (left or right side).
    Not only that You can change the size of task bar upto certain limit( nearly 50% of horizontal or vertical side). To do that, just place the mouse at the upper part of the taskbar and click the left button without dropping and drag it at whichever height.....
    And here you go......

    Yes my friend..it is possible to resize your taskbar shown in windows...
    STEPS

    1. Right-click any blank area in your taskbar and deselect Lock the Taskbar.


    2. Place your mouse over the top border of the taskbar. Your cursor will change from an I-beam to a double-arrow as circled.


    3. Hold down the left mouse button and drag the top border. In our example, well drag down.As you move the mouse, you will see a horizontal line that represents your new width. You can use this as a guide. Unlike dialog boxes or windows, you can only resize the taskbar in one direction.

    Re: Is it possible to resize the taskbar shown on windows computer?

    HELLO GUEST

    In the thumbnail below, you can see this taskbar is twice the default width. There are a number of reasons why this can happen. Sometimes, its a result of an action we did such as dragging or dropping items. Other times, this is the result of some software change such as installation.

    To change the task bar,
    1. Right-click any blank area in your taskbar and deselect Lock the Taskbar. One or more dividers will show such as the one circled in the screen snap below
    2. Place your mouse over the top border of the taskbar. Your cursor will change from an I-beam to a double-arrow as circled.
    3. Hold down the left mouse button and drag the top border. In our example, well drag down.
    As you move the mouse, you will see a horizontal line that represents your new width. You can use this as a guide. Unlike dialog boxes or windows, you can only resize the taskbar in one direction.
    4. Release the mouse when the taskbar is at your desired width.
    5. Right-click a blank area in the taskbar and select Lock the Taskbar.
    The procedure is the same if your Windows taskbar is vertical instead of horizontal.


    Well, I guess i help you enough.
    So, have a great day now,
    Thanks and Enjoy
    Regards Libin
