Reduce the size of the remote desktop connection bar?

Using remote desktop on Windows 7 64 bit PC to connect to client Servers. While I prefer to have the remote desktop conneciton bar visible when full screen, it's size is annoyingly LARGE - it fills a large portion of the top of my screen (see example graphic).

Anyone know of a way to reduce the width of the connection bar via a registry edit? It really only needs to be about 1" or 1.5" wide.

NOTE: I know there is an option to "hide" the connection bar, so that it disappears after about 5 seconds upon connection and will re-appear if you hover your mouse at the top of the screen. I don't want to do that. I'd like the bar to be always visible, but be able to adjust its width.   ConnectionBar

I think thats embedded in teh code, and is preset, and cannot be modified... At least without hacking system files.....

I agree - I simply doubt there is a any way of doing this.  You can look at other Remote Desktop tools... like http://remotedesktopmanager.com/ - also, if you upgrade your RDP client to the newest version, you'll be able to click and drag it to the left or to the right - so it won't be centered.

Thanks both. I poked around in registry and didn't see any way of controlling the size but was hoping I missed something.

The third party remote desktop replacement idea definitely looks like the way to go...
