    Size of Quick Launch icons changed


    Hello all,

    I have a very populated Quick Launch area with the icons set to small on my work computer. Today I found that the icons in the QL changed in size; previously I had the task bar two lines high and two lines of icons fit in the area. If I want to fit two lines of icons in QL area again, I need to increase the height of the taskbar to three lines. See screenshots.

    This happened after some update our IT made to get rid of another problem with my system (one that was actually affecting my work, not just my comfort). Since this is a work computer, I can't touch the registries (I don't have any experience with that anyway).

    Is there any known way to get the icons to the same displayed height as the taskbar? The extra space below is driving me crazy.

    :)

  2. Customise size of Quick Launch icons

    I have a Quick Launch bar on the left-hand side of my taskbar. If I select 'Small icons', the icons are incredibly small, and it is difficult to hit a specific one quickly.

    If I select 'Large icons' then they are incredibly large, to the point that they increase the height of my taskbar, leading there to be empty space underneath my taskbar items; making my taskbar more difficult to use, as my cursor can now go *past* the taskbar items while moving down to click one.

    Is it possible to customise the size of the Quick Launch icons to make them the same size as the default taskbar items, or alternatively (less preferred), increase the height of the taskbar items to conpensate for the additional space?

    Customise size of Quick Launch icons

    Hi @MisterCerberus , welcome to tenforums! Size of Quick Launch icons changed :)

    I don't think it's possible to do what you wish. Why not just pin them the regular way?

    Font and Icon size

    Hi Vickie,

    It's possible that some settings were accidentally changed, affecting your icons and font size. We'd like to learn more about your concern so that we could provide the proper resolution. We just have a few questions for you:

    • Which build version of Windows 10 is on your computer? To check, click
      Start
      , type winver, and press Enter. For example, 14393.1066.
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    As initial recommendation, we suggest following these steps to change the icon size:

    • Right-click on an empty space on your desktop.
    • Select View.
    • Choose Medium icons or Small icons, whichever you prefer more.

    Additionally, you can change the display size of texts and other items by following these steps:

    • Right-click on an empty space on your desktop.
    • Click Display settings.
    • Under Change the size of text, apps, and other items, drag the slider over to 100%.
    • If the slider is already on 100%, click Advanced display settings.
    • Under Resolution, choose the Recommended option from the drop-down choices.

    We'll wait for your response to our questions and the results of the initial troubleshooting.
