Quick Launch icon size



Heirloom

I am using 1280 x 1024 screen resolution and all is fine, except the Quick
Launch icons are painfully small. I have set the Desktop parameters to show
large icons, however, this does not impact the QL icons. The icons in the
System tray are larger than the QL icons..........
Is there a way to increase their size??? (besides reducing screen
resolution).
Heirloom, old and can't see anyway

Right click on desktop, properties, Appearance tab, Advanced, in the
item drop down list choose caption buttons, adjust to ur liking.

Right click an empty area in the QuickLaunch tool bar, from the menu select
View > Large icons.

Peter, if you do not see View menu, make sure you do not have your task bar
locked.

Right click taskbar, select Properties and uncheck Lock Taskbar option.

After doing this, you see find raised handles for Quicklaunch toolbar. Now,
right click on it to get the menu.

It makes them double size so the taskbar doubles too. Much better to
adjust the caption buttons setting for fine tuning.

Unlock the taskbar, and right click on an empty space on the quick launch
bar
