Windows 7: Increasing the size of taskbar icons....

Increasing the size of taskbar icons....

Hello, guys.. I'm trying to do something creative on my desktop. To do that, I would have to increase the size of the icons pinned to taskbar. Is there any way to achieve that? I've found many tutorials on how to make these icons wider, but i'm not trying to do that.
