As far as changing the way the icons appear on the taskbar, I have only been able to accomplish such with additional 3rd party software. Rainmeter is a popular solution. There are also "Transformation Packs" for Windows 7, but they mainly change your UI to Mac OS or Windows 8. Yamicsoft's Win 7 Manager software allows you to change some system icons, but I don't think you can do anything with the Taskbar.
There is a very cool Transformation pack that makes Windows look like Ubuntu (Gnome GUI) here
Humans are the only creatures that won't live up to the their potential. Give everything your all. When you die, die on E.
So I ask you, what do you intend to do now?
