    size of icons in Systray (Win XP Pro (SP2))

    I recently upped my screen resolution to 1152 x 864. I've worked out, and made, all the necessary adjustments to icon and font size necessary BAR ONE. I just cannot work out how to increase the size of icons in my Systray and Quick Launch Toolbar - the're now so small I can hardly make them out. That applies to items on my taskbar too.

    Anyone know the solution?

    Go to Troubleshooting Windows XP, Tweaks and Fixes for Windows XP. Read the instructions at the top.
    Locate no 97. The right-hand item lets you increase the size of taskbar icons. An undo is also provided.

    For the Quick Launch toolbar:
    - Unlock the taskbar.
    - Right-click an empty part of the Quick Launch toolbar.
    - Select View | Large Icons from the popup menu.

    Thanks for the prompt reply. The fix on the taskbar icons seemed to work OK. Trouble was, that when I followed the tip for the QL icons, they came out HUGE and I had to undo it. I suspect that some other alteration I've made to Control Panel | Display | Appearances is sort of counteracting it, but I can't think what. I don't know if the tip on the taskbar icons was meant to work on the System Tray as well, but there's been no change in their size. Although none of this is a major problem because my eyesight is OK, I'd like to try and make all these icons a bit bigger if I can.

    Try this (it may only work if you use a "classic" theme, but I'm not sure about that):

    - Right-click an empty area of your desktop.
    - Select Properties from the popup menu.
    - Activate the Appearance tab.
    - Click Advanced.
    - Select "Caption Buttons" in the list of items.
    - Increase the Size - either type a number or use the scroll buttons.
    - OK your way out.
