Yes, I have seen that, which points to ctl panel>'taskbar and start menu' OR to 'change size of on-screen items'. I have changed the size of the icons on the desktop, but it doesn't change the size of the task bars along the top and bottom of the screens.
Perhaps it isn't possible? I *am* gradually getting used to them!
The taskbar is at the bottom of the screen, to increase the size , right click in blank area of the taskbar in order to make sure taskbar is not locked uncheck if it is.Click near top of taskbar and drag it up.Then relock taskbar if you want to.
I use Firefox ,I don't think the navigation or toolbars can be increased in size.
march are you sure you haven't right clicked the desktop by mistake? When I right click the task bar there is no "View" option.
AS far as I'm aware you've never been able to change the size of the icons in the taskbar only the size of the taskbar itself, there may be third party programs that do it though. Changing the font sizes would change the taskbar button size and hence the the taskbar by a few pixels but the icons would remain the same.
