Icon Size on Desktop Toolbar

Q: Icon Size on Desktop Toolbar

I've searched for a while now but can't seem to find a way to increase the size of the icons on the desktop toolbar. Maybe it's something that can't be done but it'd be good because they look silly that small when you have large icons set on the taskbar

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.)

I did search. I apologize if this has been asked a thousand times already.

How can I use large icons in the Windows Explorer toolbar? Specifically, the "Change your view" icon that lets you choose from icons, details, list, tiles, etc.

My hand is not that steady and I spend half my time trying to hit this button and missing. In XP I could just right-click on the toolbar, select Customize, and select Large Icons at the bottom of the dialog. This feature (like many other customization features in Win7) appears to be hidden or missing. Have I missed something obvious here?

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.

Hi all,

A few days ago, I purchased a new 19" widescreen monitor, and have a question regarding Office 2007.

The resolution of the monitor is 1680 x 1050 32-bit, and when I open up any of the Office programs, the Quick Access Toolbar icons are small. I have been unable to find how to use larger icons with the Office 2007 programs. Is there (if at all) any way to use larger icons in the Quick Access Toolbar?

Hey all,

Need a little help here. I just bought a new laptop with Windows 7 [Asus K501N]. Old laptop was a MacBook Pro, and I have to say I'm loving W7 so far.

One little minor annoyance that I can't seem to fix. I like having the Desktop toolbar on my taskbar right next to the Start Menu, and then all my program taskbar buttons beside that. I have the same thing set up on my XP machine at work.

Problem is, when I lock the toolbar, the size of the dividers makes the Desktop taskbar stick out a bit, to show some of the child items. I've attached an image to hopefully illustrate what I mean.

So I need help finding out how I can get the Desktop toolbar to have the expanding arrow right flush with the end of the text. Any clues?!

Thanks in advance

A:Size of Desktop Toolbar on locked taskbar

Hmm, this is probably not the right procedure but it works for me:

1. I move a couple of icons from the notification area into the "box" behind the little arrow (just drag it over).
2. then I unlock the taskbar and move the toolbar name with the double arrow on the dividers such that the bit of folder is no more visible
3. I lock the taskbar - a bit of the folder is still visible
4. I drag the notification icons from the "box" back onto the taskbar - now the folder bits have disappeared

Not a very geeky way of doing things, but it seems to work - at least for me. They apparently need a little "push" from the right side.

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.

Hello everyone. I need to find where the Desktop icon size is stored in the registry. I already looked into this:

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.

I have connected my laptop to a 40" LCD TV using HDMI cable and everything works fine. Since the desktop icons/fonts on the TV shows default (small) size from the laptop, in order for me to see it from the distance I have to change the desktop icons/fonts to a larger size.

Here is my question; Is there a way to set up a different desktop icon/fonts size to match the TV and the laptop? (perhaps different profile settings???) Meaning, when I disconnect the HDMI cable from the TV, I want the size of the icons/fonts go back to default/small size icons and vice versa .

Hope this question makes sense.

I can't think of anything that exist within windows. It wasn't necessarily designed to be used on 40" LCD from 10' away in the way you are using it. That's why Windows Media Center's fonts are so much bigger.

Per this Topic here on 7F: dual monitor text is different sizes between screens you're out of luck.

Good day.

I wish to know if there is a way to change the font size/style (bold, etc.) of the icon labels ONLY on the desktop screen.

I've tried the Control Panel method (Appearance & Personalization -> Display) that allows me to change the fonts for 'ICONS'. However, this option also changes the appearance of fonts in the directories/filenames, which is not what I want.

E.g. Labels on the desktop with size 12 and bold. Fonts in folders: size 9 and UNbolded (default style).

Anyone have a solution for this?

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 trying to find the registry key that will change the desktop icon size to small.

This is mainly for new users, or for the default user. I have workstations that have several people sharing them and need this for everyone.

I have looked in these locations:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\1\Desktop\IconSize
And
HKey_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics\Shell Icon Size

I played with both these settings for myself, and the desktop icons do not change.

If I reboot, the first key value goes back to 32, and the second key stays at 96.
But my icons never change in size.

I am looking for any way to do this in the registry.

I could try copying the ntuser.dat but fear I will still have issues with paths, and other defaults that will cause the same problem I had originally.

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?)

When I right-click on the taskbar there is an option "toolbars => new toolbar". Using it you can add a folder (for example). Now when you go to look at the folder using the toolbar the size of the drop down text is extremely small and hard to read.

So, does somebody has a trick to customize the URL bar size, and benefits of the gained space to stick another bar utility?

I have one " manual " way.
It does not adjust the length automatically.

Rest your cursor at the extreme right side of the address box > the cursor should turn into a 2-pointer > left click and HOLD > drag the address box to the right or left to fit the length of the url.

On the new system its possible you have newer version of Internet explorer.

1. Enable the Menu bar on the top of the browser and check for icon size.
2. Or, on top right of Internet Explorer -> go to Page -> try resetting both 'Zoom' and 'text size'
3. Or, press and hold control key and same time scroll up and down to see the difference.

Regards,
Dell UttamSahu

Hi, all of a sudden and for no reason, various icons have stopped loading for both the programs and files used by these programs: 



.JPG
.PDF
Microsoft Edge
Various Windows Programs




The programs still work fine but I would like to have the icons back.
This seems to be a problem that many people are having but I can find no definite solution. 





Any ideas?

Not a big but very annoying issue.

I have Taskbar vertically on the left. Works well, I like it as it is. On two of my rigs I also have a tablet input device, which puts its own toolbar on Taskbar.

When Taskbar is not locked, the size of the icon is as it should be, the smallest possible as I've set it. When I lock the Taskbar, it seems the size of the toolbar icon is "randomized"; it can stay small as I want to, or it can be huge.

When rebooting, it's normally never the same size it was before shutting Windows down. It really is totally random.

Any ideas?

I have absolutely no idea whether this is related to your question but take a look anyway.

Not sure if this is what your asking or not,
Right click your Taskbar and click on Properties,
Taskbar section,
Check the box to Use small icons ?

Hello JingleJangle, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It looks like your shortcut arrow overlay icon got messed up somehow. You can use either method in the tutorial below to restore the arrow icon. Method Two is the easiest way with the program.

Shortcut Arrow - Change, Remove, or Restore

Hope this helps,

hello, wondering if you could help or even tell me if theres a way!?

I have created a "ToolBar" in the "StartBar/TaskBar" (By right click on the task bar/start bar, hovering over "Toolbars" and click "New Toolbar" then selecting a folder) To save time and clutter.
This is fine and does what I want it too! But the only problem is the file name is quite long, therefore it takes quite a lot of room up in my startbar. So i was wondering I could replace the long name with an icon?

Please help!?

Hello Vistaluver,

Yes, you can use the same method as this to have a icon for the toolbar instead.
