Resize Search Bar width?


I have very long search bar, I want to reduce the width of Search Bar and increase width of Address Bar, see my attachment pic.

I tried to play with Address, Breadcrumb & Search > Address > AddressBand > Basic > AddressBand settings but cannot find a way how to change the width, please help.
