  1. icon too small on all software I runned


    Hi,

    I could not resize the icon of tools for each software I run . They are too small

    For instance, I use QGIS software and I could not see the icons : save, zoom in, pan map, move, .. as they are too small

    Sometimes, when I run the software, the size of the software windows is too small also

    Could you help me please

    Thanks

    :)

    • Click Apply and OK.
    If the issue still persists, you can change the size of desktop icons.

    • Right-click an empty space on the desktop.
    • Select View and choose either Large, Medium or Small icons.
    • Check if you can change the size of the taskbar button.
    Let us know how it goes.

    Regards.

  3. Icons for app shortcuts are small

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I understand that you are facing issues with desktop icons on your PC, as they are looking too small. For further clarity, please respond to the questions below:



    1. Which build version of Windows 10 are you using currently?
    2. Are you aware of any changes made to the PC prior to which you weren’t facing this issue?
    3. How did you create the shortcuts of the applications on the desktop?


    Meanwhile, I would suggest you to follow the steps mentioned below and check if that helps.



    Method 1:



    I would suggest you to try updating the display drivers and check if that helps. Refer the article

    Update drivers in Windows 10
    . You can also try updating the drivers by downloading them from the manufacturer website.



    If the above method doesn’t work, please try the next method.



    Method 2:



    Try rebuilding the icon cache and check if that helps. Follow the steps mentioned below to clear icon cache.



    1. Press Windows + E key on the keyboard to open
      File Explorer.
    2. Now click on View tab and
      check the box
      next to Hidden items.
    3. Navigate to the location: C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local

      Note:
      Where UserName is the user account name which you are logged into.
    4. Locate IconCache.db file and right click on it.
    5. Now click on Delete and click on
      Yes
      .
    6. Restart the PC.


    If the issue persists, please get back to us with the results of the troubleshooting steps to assist you further.

    Small taskbar icons and Cortana search


    What do I suggest?

    I suggest you hit the WinKey and start typing..., forget the icon and search box altogether! *Wink
