    How to change width of toolbars

    Hi im using DU Meter for showing internet stats as a toolbar, but at 4k resolution the toolbar gets distorted. It does not have enough width, the numbers get cut off.

    Does anyone know how to change the size of toolbars? They are called task bands i think but i havent found a way to edit them. Thanks.

    This is how it should be: Click image for larger version.

    Hello Dusty,

    If you like, you could unlock the taskbar, drag its height up more to what you want, then lock the taskbar when finished.

    Yeah there i was googling for registry tweaks and band object programming, searching for toolbar width. But i never thought about unlocking the taskbar haha, there was no reason to do it in 10 years until now. I guess i just became an example of overthinking a simple problem.
