Windows 10’s taskbar icons are small by default, but you can easily change their size.

To change the size of the icons in the Windows 10 taskbar, right-click on a blank area of the desktop and choose Display settings from the menu that pops up. Then, move the slider to 100%, 125%, 150%, or 175% under “Change the size of text, apps, and other items.” Click the Apply button at the bottom of the window.

Please note that Windows might ask you to log out and log back in for a more consistent experience. This will not only make the icons in the taskbar larger, but it will also make text bigger in apps like Microsoft Edge & Calendar, as well as in Windows 10 notification windows. Now you know how to change the size of your taskbar icons!

How do I make the apps on my taskbar smaller?

As anyone who has ever tried to find a specific icon on a crowded taskbar can attest, the size of the icons can have a big impact on usability. By default, Win 10 uses large icons on the taskbar, but these can be easily changed to small icons in the Taskbar settings.

To do this, you open the Settings app and go to System > Notifications & actions. In the Notifications section, scroll down to the Taskbar heading and turn on the option for Use small taskbar buttons. The change will take effect immediately, and all of the icons on the taskbar will shrink in size. If the new icons are too small, simply go back to the Taskbar settings and turn off the option for Use small taskbar buttons.

How to make the taskbar icons smaller in Windows 10?

If you’re like me, you’re always looking for ways to optimize your workflow and make your desktop as clean and clutter-free as possible.

One way to do this is to make your taskbar icons smaller. Smaller icons take up less space on your screen, freeing up more real estate for other important windows and applications.

Fortunately, Windows 10 makes it easy to adjust the size of your taskbar icons. Simply right-click on the taskbar, select “Taskbar settings,” and then set the “Use small taskbar buttons” option to “On.” You’ll see an immediate difference, and you’ll be able to get back to work with a cleaner, more streamlined desktop. Thanks, Microsoft!
