    XP Taskbar

    In using XP Pro, up to now I've had it set to the "Classic" style for the Start Menu and the Taskbar. I thought, what the heck, let's try the new style. I'm still not sure if I like it, particularly irksome is the absence of the sorting of Programs and Favorites based on frequency of use. I really liked that in Win2K.

    I'm wondering if there's a way to enlarge the icons on the taskbar in the XP Style desktop. So far, I've not found a way to do it. Being a bit nearsighted (understatement of the month!!), it would be helpful to have larger icons on the taskbar.

    Thanks for any thoughts.

    Right-click your Desktop in any place and from pop-up menu choose Properties, then Appearance tab. From the Font Size drop-down list, choose Extra Large (or Large, if you prefer) and click OK.
