I have changed my screen resolution on my 19 inch monitor to 1024  by 768 for graphic purposes, but the task bar and icons are so small it's uncomfortable viewing them. I believe there is a seting that will increase their size but I don't remember where it is.
Thanks,
Annas

Greetings, annas !

You can change your dpi setting from 96 to something higher, like 120.

To change the DPI setting on your computer, follow these steps:
1.    Right-click the Windows desktop, and then click Properties on the shortcut menu. The Display Properties dialog box opens.
2.    Click the Settings tab, and then click the Advanced button.
3.    On the General tab, DPI settings appear in a list in the Display area. To change the DPI setting, select a size from the DPI setting drop-down list under Display, and then click OK.
4.    Restart your computer to allow the changes to take effect.
5.    Add the UseHR registry entry:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main
UseHR= dword:00000001
