Windows 7: change toolbar/quicklaunch icon size other than large/small.

change toolbar/quicklaunch icon size other than large/small.

ok I did a lot of research and a lot of people seems to think they know what I am talking about but infact they dont, and i have try and tried many of the methods they suggested and its obviously not working thats why im posting here.

I want to manually change the icon size of the toolbar/quicklaunch, NOT the taskbar, but most likely the pinned icon via toolbar/quicklaunch in window 7. this might also be related to changing icon size of the pinned icon on taskbar, but its not the taskbar thats troubling me, it is the toolbar/quicklaunch icons.

options listed and exists large and small icon size. large is too large, small is too small. i believe and strongly believe there is a way to change it, either through registry, or resource hack some .dll file, i donno which but i would like to get some help from experts please.

i hope to see other people out there sharing the same pain as i do.


these are the things that ive tried.

- shellicon in registry size 16 to whatever it is, has not helped.
- desktop -> personalize -> windows color -> advanced settings -> captions.. etc none has helped.
- HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Control Panel -> Desktop -> WindowMetricsFind "MinWidth" which obviously has no effect on the toolbar/quiclaunch icon size.

as you can see from picture below, same icons. but large is too large, small is too small. i wish there is a change in registry where i could modify this as i do not wish to use 3rd party dock.

those 3rd party program looks nice, but since they are not part of the taskbar, windows that are opened block them, and even if they do come with functions to be always on top, they block the windows that are opened instead.

unless theres a 3rd party dock that can be part of the taskbar, im wont be interested in it.

Delete all those Quick Launch Icons (the smallest Icons), Right Click and Delete then choose Yes.

Then Drag up on the Biggest Icons (Start Menu Pinned Apps) or Right Click on it and select "Unpin this program from taskbar"

Right click on the Taskbar and unselect Use Small Icons and select "Always combine, hide labels" under Taskbar buttons.

Sorry I read the question wrong.

i want the icons to be there, the large/small icons u see in the picture will and should stay there, except only the fact that the large icons on the bottom row is too big and i wish to make it smaller, but not as small as the small icons. thanks for your help though

Just wondering if unityole ever found a solution to his/her problem.

Quick Launch Icon Sizing

Hi there,

Yes, I'm sharing your pain! I'm now running Windows 8.1 but in the various versions I've used over the years I've had exactly the same problem. The small version of the icons is too damned small and the large version too big.

As you probably believe surely there must be a really simple solution. It doesn't seem to be too much to ask for.

Gerry.
