Large icons under "All Programs"??

Is it possible have large icons under "All Programs" in Windows 7?

I have tried the "Use large icons" under Customize start menu options. Doesn't help!

Is there any other way?

Thanks!

Try this
Right mouse click on desktop
Select Personalize
When the screen opens look at the lower left hand corner of th escreen
Select Display
Then select 125% and apply
You may have to reboot for it to take effect.
Let me know if it works

Thanks!

It does. But I don't want all of the display having 125% or more zoom level. Is it possible to have only "All Programs" zoomed??

Thanks again!
