    Shrink window caption buttons w/o shrinking taskbar tray icons?


    I found this tutorial on how to shrink the window caption buttons (minimize/maximize/close) by tweaking the registry. However, as anyone who uses it is aware, changing the caption button sizes also changes the taskbar tray icons, so by shrinking the caption buttons to a more sensible size you end up with tiny taskbar icons.

    Does anyone know of a way to shrink the caption buttons without also shrinking the taskbar icons?

    Hello Noc, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    Did you try the method in the tutorial below? It doesn't shrink or enlarge the taskbar tray icons for me.

    Heya, thanks. And yes, that’s the exact tutorial I referenced in my post, which doesn’t work for me because it shrinks the taskbar tray icons. If it isn’t supposed to change the icons’ size, then I’d like to know how to stop it happening on my end.
