    Change spacing for stacking multiple folders/windows that are open.


    Hi.

    I recently upgraded my win 8.1 pro to win 10 and I have an annoyance.

    When I have many (read about 15) Firefox windows (NOT TABS) open they stack vertically (from taskbar). Like this picture is showing (only shows 3 of the windows.):


    What I'm trying to do here is remove or lower the spacing between each window. To make the list tighter.

    I've found the same true for multiple open folders/drives (explorer windows). It's how things are sorted when they can no longer be thumbnails.

    Any help is welcome I've looked a bit for guides and in the register. But with no luck. Any help is appreciated!
    Thank you in advance, dira.

    There are several registry values that will be recognized but do not exist by default. All can be created under:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Taskband

    The value names are:

    TextHeightPx
    MinthumbSizePx
    MaxThumbSizePx
    TopMarginPX
    LeftMarginPx
    RightMarginPx
    BottomMarginPx
    ThumbSpacingXPx
    ThumbSpacingYPx
    Numthumbnails

    All are DWORDS that represent # of pixels.

    The Margin values set to a low value will squash the list but hide some text.

    Try ThumbSpacingYPx set to 1.

    You need to sigh out & back in to see the change --- or use task manager to restart Explorer after each edit. So play around & let us know what you find.
