    Is there a way to make Desktop+Toolbar icons bigger+more Win 7style?


    I hate the flat style of Win 10 GUI.

    Is there a way to make the desktop+toolbar icons bigger and more 3D-plastic/more Win 7 stylish?

    I might be able to help with part of that, if you right click on the task-bar, then click settings, you'll see a (partial) windows that looks like this:

    Taskbar Buttons - Use Large or Small Size in Windows 10

    Click image for larger version.

    As the on-image text admonishes, make sure "Use small taskbar buttons" is off. This offers larger icons that work much better for my old eyes, and maybe yours too. For other things to try, check out this CNET story: 10 ways to customize the taskbar in Windows 10 - CNET.
