Change Icon size in Quicklaunch

Q: Change Icon size in Quicklaunch

I'm trying to get my first win 7 system set up. And quite frustrated. I've found the usual "large Icon / Small Icon" setting. It's already on small for the task bar. Those are the size I want, just like I had them in XP. After a lot of confusion & searching I finally found I had to enable quicklaunch, and did so. But the smegging icons are 2-3 times the size of the task bar ones. Secondary annoyance I have: I prefer the task bar vertically on the left of the screen. It won't get nice and narrow like it did in win XP. Is there any fix for this? Thank you, Dave

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello Dave, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Please go ahead and post a screenshot showing this to help ID any possible unknown issues.

You should be able to use step 7 in Option One of the tutorial below to use small icons in Quick Launch. Quick Launch - Enable or Disable
The taskbar will not be as thin when moved to a side than it was on the bottom of your desktop. About all you can do is resize the taskbar as thin as will allow. Taskbar - Resize
Hope this may help some for now,

ok I did a lot of research and a lot of people seems to think they know what I am talking about but infact they dont, and i have try and tried many of the methods they suggested and its obviously not working thats why im posting here.

I want to manually change the icon size of the toolbar/quicklaunch, NOT the taskbar, but most likely the pinned icon via toolbar/quicklaunch in window 7. this might also be related to changing icon size of the pinned icon on taskbar, but its not the taskbar thats troubling me, it is the toolbar/quicklaunch icons.

options listed and exists large and small icon size. large is too large, small is too small. i believe and strongly believe there is a way to change it, either through registry, or resource hack some .dll file, i donno which but i would like to get some help from experts please.

i hope to see other people out there sharing the same pain as i do.
these are the things that ive tried.

- shellicon in registry size 16 to whatever it is, has not helped.
- desktop -> personalize -> windows color -> advanced settings -> captions.. etc none has helped.
- HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Control Panel -> Desktop -> WindowMetricsFind "MinWidth" which obviously has no effect on the toolbar/quiclaunch icon size.

as you can see from picture below, same icons. but large is too large, small is too small. i wish there is a change in registry where i could modify this as i do not wish to use 3rd party dock.

those 3rd party program looks nice, but since they are not part of the taskbar, windows that are opened block them, and even if they do come with functions to be always on top, they block the windows that are opened instead.

unless theres a 3rd party dock that can be part of the taskbar, im wont be interested in it.

I want to increase the type font display size globally, for all applications & windows features, but I want to preserve the smaller desktop icon size. Is there any way to adjust them independently?

I know about the advanced display settings for window color & appearance, and that has some good settings, but it is not sufficient, because it does not change most instances of text as it displays in applications.

Thanks for any suggestions.

A:Any way to change type size but NOT icon size?

Here's my whole list of font size change settings, one of which might provide the answer for you. You've probably tried some of them, but see if there's something here that might change the font size on those icons, without changing the size of the icons themselves:

1. This is the one of the main setting tools for setting various locations of Windows font sizes. Right-click on the Desktop and go to Personalize, Window Color and Appearance. Click on Advanced, and in the drop-down menu, select the item that controls the location where you wish to change the font size. (Note: the last one, Window, does not have an option to control font size.)

2. DPI - Right click on Desktop, Personalize, On Personalization Page, go to left column to: Adjust Font size ? DPI, DPI Scaling: Click on Large scale (120 DPI), and click Apply.

3. Screen Resolution: Right-click on the Desktop, choose Screen Resolution, click on the down-arrow at the end of the Resolution box, and pick the desired resolution. Check OK.

4. Display: Right-click on the Desktop, select Personalize, then Display. From the 3 settings: Small, Medium, Large, if screen defaults to Medium (125% size for font and images) and that?s too large, use Small for 100% size (aka ?normal?)

5. At the lower right hand corner of every IE web page, there?s a Zoom control that lets you increase the size of every web page, and it stays at that Zoom setting for every page until/unless you change it.

6. Open Internet Explorer, go to T... Read more

I have researched until I am blue in the face and not found out how to do this.

We are getting ready to have house guests, and I have created an account for them to use. I would like to create a desktop shortcut icon which is roughly double the size of the other icons to draw attention to it. The target file will be a basic readme with a couple of short rules for using my computer.

If I cannot find a way to create the single larger icon, I will resort to another idea I have in mind. That idea is to type the rules in Word and use Snipping Tool to capture the text and use the resulting image as a desktop background.

Hi I'm new here. Nice forum btw. I'll just get right into it.

What I'm trying to achieve. I downloaded a nice little program called Folderico and it allows me to apply an icon image to a folder. I wanted to increase the windows explorer icon size to 192x192 and have the folder (with applied icon image) look something like this:



The problem. Whenever I change the icon size, via registry tweak, everything else changes too. I don't want the icons on the desktop to change size nor do I want the icons in the menu and tool bar to change, just the folder so that it'll look exactly like the picture above.

Windows Vista has some sort of slider feature that will let the user change the icon size for just the folder quite easily but I'm using Windows XP. Are there other registry tweaks that some of you could suggest? Is there some soft of Vista hacked version of their explorer that I can use on Windows XP?

I'd really appreciate any help that I can get on this. Thanks in advance.

Hi,
This view size is controlled by HKU specific user registry. Thus it can't be mapping to another user account.
If you insist, there is a complex workaround(However I wouldn't like to recommend you use this method):
Copy the following registry value to place another user's registry.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags

Note: It can't be imported, just copy its value.

Hi, This is my first post. I recently was given a new Dell 15R touchscreen computer and it was upgraded to Windows 8.1. I've only used Windows XP up until 3 days ago. I am a novice user.

I liked the way the desktop icons looked in XP, the shortcuts for Netflix and Ikea were a nice big red box with an N in it for Netflix, a yellow and blue box for Ikea . They were medium sized, about 1/2" big, but I could recognize them easily and quickly because of the individual graphics.

Now with Windows 8.1, the shortcut icons are a 1/2" white square and a very teeny tiny logo in the center that I can barely see and have confused with other similar icons. I have found where to change the icon size and text size but not the icon appearance. Where would I find this? I have right clicked on the desktop, I've looked in the control panel, I've checked display.

8.1 is a heck of a learning curve for me and I am enjoying learning the new system but I would like to be able to quickly and easily see what I put on my desktop.

Thank you for any and all help. I appreciate it.

I am having much fun grappling with my displays. I say grapple because I CANNOT see the text!

I have a laptop, with a display that has up to 2048x resolution and an external monitor that does 1920x. I have tried to keep both set the same resolution so the mouse will easily go back and fort.

If I bump one setting, others seem to change. Like after an update too!

I need a script, to set, then set again, and again, the
display settings,
the custom scaling level, and
the "change only text size".

Keeping the monitor placement geometry the same would be great for me too.

Oh for a cross reference on Outlook 2013 to the system setting. I keep manipulating the view settings there too.

thanks!
 

A:can i put "refresh" icon on quicklaunch?

If you're talking about hitting the refresh button in Internet Explorer you can just hit F5 to do the same thing. A keystroke is faster than an icon on the quick launch bar.

The same thing in Firefox is Reload and you can do that with Ctrl R.

Hello!

I have just setup my new laptop with Windows 10 Home and installed Dropbox. I noticed that the Dropbox folder icon is offset compared to other icons. The folder part of the icon is more towards the top than all other folder icons. See this image:
Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet

I know it seems like a small issue, but once I saw this, I can't unsee it, and it annoys the heck out of me

So - I designed a new icon. It is basically the same, but with the position fixed and the Dropbox-logo is a flat design. If anyone is interested, you can grab it here:
Dropbox - dropbox-fixed.ico

It looks perfect when changed - BUT, once you restart the computer, the Dropbox folder icon reverts back to the default. I tried it several times.

So I was wondering if it is possible to change the icon elsewhere. Maybe in the regedit somewhere. I don't know enough about that stuff to mess with it.

Hope someone can help!

Thanks.

i cannot change the explorer icon nest to the start orb.I've downloaded the themes at deviantart and followed each and every steps..and use resHack also.but i still can't change it.Any idea?

A:cannot change explorer icon (icon next to start orb)

Should be able to just right click on the explorer icon, then right again where it says Windows Explorer, then Properties, change icon. Point to where the new icon you want to change to is, and apply. Might have to reboot for it to change.

Hello Kechik Crew, and welcome to Seven Forums.

If you like, you could do a system restore using a restore point dated before this happened to undo and fix this quickly.

IE 6.0
I have a user on an imaged pc - who wants her fonts larger in IE
I changed in the IE registry to medium - logged in as user -
but the change won't "stick" - it goes back to smaller font
also when changing font size via "View/Text Size/Medium"
this will not stay either? any ideas -
The Administrator IE Font Default size is medium already - but
does not carry over to the "user"
thanks

Hi all,

I installed BSPlayer, didn't like it, and decided to go back to using Divx player.
I have all the file associations sorted so all my video files run in Divx again, but the icons are still the same as they were for the BSPlayer.

I know its not a really big problem, but its annoying!!

Any help?

Matt.
 

A:Annoying icon change... change back?

In explorer try...
Tools > Folder options >File types >select the file extension you want to change the icon for then click on the Advanced button, then click on the Change Icon button.
See if the icon you want to use is there.

win 7 ultimate 64 bit
asus mobo
8 gb ram in dual channel
300 gb raptor hd
22 in samsung monitor

I am trying to make the folders on my desktop small without making the corresponding text under the folders real small. The monitor resolution is now at 1280 x 720. I would like to keep it that way unless i should change it?

If i go to display and change the text size higher it also makes the folders larger and i want the folders to be small but keep the text size.

Can you help me out?
thank you

A:icon size in win 7

Click on the desktop, hold down the control key, with the mouse scroll wheel set the icon size to whatever you want. This also works with Vista.
