Windows 7: Change Icon Size - Explorer Navigation Pane?

Change Icon Size - Explorer Navigation Pane?

Is there a way to increase the size of the drive and/or folder icons in the navigation pane of Windows Explorer? It's easy to change the icon size in the folder pane or on the desktop, but these changes don't seem to affect the icons in the navigation pane of Explorer.

I'm running Windows7 x64 Home Premium. I have tried both Windows 7 Basic and Windows Classic themes and neither seems to allow this customization.

The system uses the 16 x 16 icons for the Explorer navigation pane.
Changing this is not an option.


Or the answer you wanted.

Thanks for your reply. Indeed, it is not the answer I was hoping for. However, I can now quit looking for a way to do this. It is yet another reason to find a replacement for the Windows 7 version of Explorer.
