    How to change size of icons in system tray / notification area?


    Hi, I'd like to increase the size of icons in system tray / notification area of Windows 10.
    Is it possible to do this, maybe changing some registry values? Thank you in advance.

    As I said, I want to change (specifically, increase) the size of the icons in the notification area (aka system tray), the size of icons in taskbar is already set as "large". I'll post an image:

    I'd like to increase the size of those icons.

    EDIT - I forgot to say, I already read the CNET page of your post.

    So sorry, I can't seem to find anything that does exactly what you want. That said, it may be interesting to look into Freedom Scientific's MAGic software, which provides persistent on-screen magnification capabilities: it's a replacement for the built-in magnifier with a great many more features. Here's a description of its latest version, but it costs $400 and thus may be laughably outside your budget.

    For Windows 7, ObjectDock (from StarDock) has a nice feature that lets you create a dock consisting of icons from the system tray/notification area that you select. And you can magnify the sizes of those icons in the dock to be any size you want.

    Unfortunately, ObjectDock is not supported on Windows 10, and when I tried it anyway, that feature no longer works.

    Thank you for your suggestion, I'd prefer a different (and possibly cheaper) solution.

    I also tried ObjectDock a few months ago and I had two major problems:

    1. It does not support Windows 10 and Windows 10 apps (as you said).
    2. It does not support notification badges.
