It doesn't change either icon or size. The screen shot shown is just that way because I've got Windows (7) configured so that it always uses full-width taskbar buttons, until the task bar is completely full.

Here's a random example of what it looks like when Explorer is busy (copying or something) on Windows 10:

Yes, but that requires drawing on top of the icon. I expect ZTreeWin doesn’t have any drawing code...

I don’t know... We still got customers complaining when we introduced a feature only available in XP SP3 and up(!) without proper fallback.

In which case all the other scenarios described in this thread are of equal use, i.e. none. I expect that nobody would want to see ZTreeWin's progress when they’re watching full-screen content, unless perhaps an auditory notification when it’s finished.
