Unfortunately, Aaron, when I right click I find that it is not locked, and I cannot reduce the width (depth) of the bar by dragging. Locking it and unlocking it again doesn't help.

I just fixed it myself (accidentally). I turned off the quick access toolbar. When I turned it back on, the icons were normal size.
