just got myself a second LCD for Christmas and ever since I plugged it in I have a problem with my taskbar. I have the taskbar at the right side of the screen and now it's abnormally huge.

Here's a screenshot of the situation:

Anyone have an idea? I searched around but couldn't find anything?

Simply right click on any empty space on the taskbar and untick "Lock the taskbar"

Then, when you hover your mouse over the edge of the taskbar, it should change and let you shrink the taskbar to a more "normal" size.

That being said, before Windows 7 made the taskbar really good and into a feature, I used to (in XP at least) have the taskbar larger than that and in the middle of both screens and used the auto hide option.
