right click and make sure that there is no check mark beside the "Lock
If there is one, left click on the "Lock the Taskbar" to remove the check.
Then hover your mouse over the top edge of the bar and the mouse
pointer should change to a vertical line with an arrow head on each end.
LEFT click and hold the mouse button, then move your mouse upwards and
you should see the bar get bigger, do the opposite to make it smaller.
Let go of the mouse button once you are done.
Once finished, right click on the taskbar again, and left click beside
"Lock the Taskbar" to lock it again so that it can't be changed.
Hope this helps,

second what he said except I think you need to RIGHT click on the
taskbar where there isn't anything going on (like the lower right
corner) and then click to unlock if lock toolbar is checked
once unlocked, then you can hover over the top edge of the toolbar to
get the arrows click to hold and drag it
