Question Taskbar Big Icons?


Hey all! Is it possible to make the taskbar show only icons, hiding the name of the apps?

Sure there is..

Right click on the taskbar, goto remove -> applet -> taskbar.

Presto it's gone... just becareful because minimizing apps will hide them for good.

P.S. This assumes you're using Kde

/*Edited portion
Oops!!! I can't read.... you want to hide the text and show icons only!

That I don't know... sorry for taking up space here..

So... Nothing yet? Isn't there even a program or an applet for the panels?

There's a text only option, but no icon only, it seems.

Hi,

In my KDE 3.1.4 there is an option to add something like KasBar. Right-click on Kicker and add Extension -> KasBar.
