Change The Size of Taskbar Icons Windows 11

By default, Windows 11 comes with a magnificent screen and icon size, but if you desire to create a difference, you can make the icons bigger, so you will see the icons a little more clear. Conversely, if you desire to make the icons a little smaller, you can do so, and then you can fit more icons or your content on the screen at once.

This will allow you to set the taskbar icons to one of the three various sizes: small, medium, and large. The medium size means the default size of the icons. And let us tell you if you want to increase the size of the taskbar icons, this will automatically increase the size of the taskbar itself along with the start menu, search and task view buttons.
