    I'm trying (in vain, so far) to adjust the size of the icons in the taskbar
    as they are just TOO small--using some of the other posts as guidance , i
    went to properties on taskbar & CLEARED "show small icons in start menu"--but
    that hasn't helped. Anything else i can do to get these taskbar icons to
    alrger size>

    TIA-

    Hi John--
    Thanks for the reply--but the article you referred me to was for the
    "Quick Launch Icons". I am referring to icons in the same box as
    time--messenger, ,etc (EXTREME Right).

    Sorry...your original post did not mention the icons in
    the notification area of the taskbar...I don't know how
    to enlarge those.

    CORRECTION to the above post--it SHOULD be "Icons in the NOTIFICATION AREA of
    the taskbar" (next to time)...

    TIA

    A. Decrease screen resolution. That will make everything bigger, you can
    then change the stuff you want smaller via Display Properties, Appearance,
    Advanced.

    B. Find a 3rd party app to do it

    The notification area inherits the settings of 'Active Title Bar' from
    display properties
    advanced

    right click the screen
    properties
    appearance
    advanced
    active title bar, change the pixel size

    it will, obviously, also change the title bar
