Does anyone know how I can change the icon size for the toolbar in MS SQL Server 2012 Management Studio

Is there a way to "Use large icons" in SQL Server 2012 Management Studio?
In 2008 we had the option to customize - Use large icons.

But I don't get the same in 2012...

According to Microsoft, I should be able to do this..

Imho this was intentionally removed in Visual Studio 2010.

I don't have an SSMS 2014 at hands, but you may install it and check whether the feature was revived..

Thank you for the reply ste5an,
It just seems weird that MS would still show instruction on how to do something if it was removed.
I have applications that will not allow me to go higher that SQL2012 so I have to stay where I am for now.

I am going to give it another day to see if anyone found another way to do this before I close the question.

It's only about SSMS 2014, not SQL Server 2014.

Just install SSMS 2014 from Microsoft® SQL Server® 2014 Express.
