Re: Hard-to-Identify Icons on Taskbar
I probably don't understand your issue, but the buttons (whether from Office
2007 or other applications) on my taskbar include the identical icons as are
in the Quick Launch area. Admittedly, they are small, but seem pretty
distinctive (style and color) to my eyes. Perhaps if you played around
with the Personalization settings you might find better visual attributes?
