    Hello boskey,

    You can set to have large or small buttons (icons) on your taskbar, but they are large by default.

    Taskbar Buttons - Use Large or Small Size in Windows 10

    To get them larger, you could use a higher DPI scaling level, but this will also make everything larger as well.

    How big do you want them? Large Icons on the taskbar has been an option for a long time now.

    If you say so, I don't recall them being any bigger but my memories not always what it should be. I don't find the current size to be an issue.

    Let's not get snide about this shall we.

    I suspect the difference you see between the computers are due to the DPI and screen resolution set on them.

    I would recommend to set your DPI in Windows 10 to say 125% for a slightly larger size without everything else getting too large.
