Every time I did that in the past I turned it off again after a relatively short period of time for reasons I can't remember ATM. I might try it again some time.

There are slim "skins" for windows aka shell themes aka msstyles. They trim down the taskbar width.

If your cursor drifts to close to the bottom much this can get really annoying.

Problem is it still would take up space which is something that I just don't have to give.

good bump.
I used to like this thread. almost forgot about it.

my desktop still has that ultra-clean thing going on.

I love a desktop that's completely free of clutter and this is my favorite iteration yet. using default Windows 7 interface, it's called the '3-button-system.' every program I need on a daily basis is organized inside the "apps" folder while the "temp" folder is for organizing anything that comes and goes on a weekly basis; individual documents/pics/music/downloads etc. those are the first 2 buttons. the third is the trash can which resides all alone in the opposite corner. with this system I can access virtually any file on my harddrive in 3 clicks or less.

it also just lets me enjoy the background image which rotates (once every hour) through my latest batch of uploaded photos. during the past 1.5 months I've been taking a LOT of pictures of our new dog, a golden retriever named "Yadi" after St Louis Cardinals baseball player Yadier Molina. yes, we are pathetically hardcore baseball fans.

@^ Golden Retrievers are WAY too photogenic.

I am not a big fan of minimalism. But clearly I like otters.

I obviously like old sports cars and warm colors. No cleaning necessary as I never put anything right on my desktop. Never really see it either because I always have stuff open and I just use sleep mode so they never get closed.

I believe he was referring to me, not giving Gir ****, and merely commenting on Gir's gif... Fixed it btw. It over stretches the page on some resolutions.

Seriously?

This is a PC gaming forum. Except for evilgrins and leo, who can't afford - 10 year old PCs, everyone here is browsing this at + 1920x1080, and it looks like those two dudes don't really care about off-topic.

Your desktop pic (really cool, BTW) was not over stretching the page at those resolutions at all...

1600x900 limited by my monitor because my nice 1 died and I haven't got around to replacing it yet... But I have made the same argument.

The typical term is that it 'breaks the page' ... but buf's css seem to handle it without to much graphical issues.

... hillarious troll on the 56k bit since all the screenshot tag does is scale the displayed image... it still loads whatever file size it is...
