    How can i enlarge the popup button?
    Can i replace it with an image?
    Can i place it directly next to the Start button, or to the right of the system tray?

    thx

    John,
    Q1 - You cannot. Even enlarging Taskbar icon size has no effect on it.
    Q2 - No
    Q3 - Yes, you can move it next to the Start button. Taskbar Toolbars - my drag them to the left ditty - TenForums [it is post #20 in the Taskbar Toolbars tutorial thread]



    By the way, I don't know what you mean by, "I hid the icons behind a popup menu". Do you just mean that all that is shown on the Taskbar is the Title & the >> symbol? That is the most common way of using a Taskbar toolbar. [Showing the Title is optional.]

    Well , it requires to get windows style builder ( the universal tool to make custom themes )
    Ave's Windows Style Builder
    Be aware it's not freeware and requires some experiment but my answer was to say there is a way for OP

    Otherwise , if OP is motivated , here is the path in the tool where to edit the double arrow for replacing it by his own image ( PNG format )

    Taskbar & System Tray > TaskBar > Basic > Rebar > Chevron

    There is lot of info and tutorial on WSB forum: VistaStyleBuilder - Index

    If the pop up chevrons are too small, you can always Tab to it...
