Resizing taskbar

2 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

I need to write a script to resize the taskbar. I've searched the forums and found methods

to determine the state/size of the taskbar but I still haven't been able to figure out how to resize it.

Here is the code that I have tried (without success):

AutoItSetOption("WinTitleMatchMode", 4)
WinMove("classname=Shell_TrayWnd","",0,734,1024,34)

If you look at HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Desktop\Components\0 the Position value you can see how the binary data changes as you resize the taskbar and refresh the regedit window. You could probably write a script to manipulate this and then refresh explorer.exe. Infact, I modified the value, killed explorer and restarted it, and my new taskbar size took effect, so there's no doubt you can do this. Whether or not this can mess up anything though, I don't know. I'd test more, but I dont' want to screw up any of the workstations here at work. heh.
