Windows 7: System tray icons got super tiny?

System tray icons got super tiny?

After making changes to windows borders under "Advanced appearance settings" under "Window Color and Appearance", my system tray icons to the right of the task bar has become super tiny. My regular task bar icons are not affected, nor is the size of the task bar.

Does anyone know what setting I need to change to make them bigger again?

Also, after making the "Captions Buttons" setting larger, the icons get larger but they are pixilated and you can hardly see what they look like.

Hi Don,

I tried this, and got the result you described. I firstly set the Caption Buttons to their smallest settings (8) and then reset them to their default (21). The result, as you know, was blocky and pixelated icons. The solution (and you're going to kick yourself) is to restart your computer, after which the icons will be back to normal.

Hi Dwarf, thanks for your reply. I am currently working and can't reboot during the day. I will try it after work. Thanks again.
