Resize icons in Navigation pane? RRS feed

  • Question

  • On big screens with high resolution, the folder icons are small in the navigation pane. Is it possible to extend the small, medium and large icons options to this view as well?

  • Hi lzim,

     

    There is no separate setting for Windows Explorer navigation pane icon size.

     

    You can try the workaround mentioned by Renjith to change the size of the text and icons. For your reference, I have included the steps below:

     

    Change the DPI

    ===========

    1.     Go to Start, type DPI in the Search box and then press Enter on the keyboar.

    2.     Chose Medium - 125%.

    3.     Click Apply button.

    4.     Log off and then log on.

     

    Note: To customize the DPI size, you can select "Set custom text size" on the left pane.

     

    Regards,

    Linda

  • If you are in a folder and would like to quickly resize the icons, there’s a shortcut you can use with your mouse wheel to resize the icons.

     

    Just hold down the Ctrl key, and scroll the mouse wheel in any folder. The icons will immediately resize bigger or smaller.


    Otherwise you can try this  http://www.techtalkz.com/windows-7/516049-how-change-font-size-icon-size-windows-7-a.html
