    Systray icons size / Taskbar button font

    1--I'm working on a friend's laptop to make things more visible for her. The systray icons are tiny despite my unchecking "small icons" in the Control Panel

    2--Where the buttons are in the taskbar, showing current windows, the font is almost invisible white, and I can't figure out how to make it black. I have no white settings in any of the other text choices. Is this a laptop thing?

    Is the answer somewhere in Control Panel>Desktop>Window Metrics in the registry? I used that a few months ago for other issues, but I don't touch the reg without precise instructions.

    Which theme are you using? I'd try setting it back to the default Windows 7 Aero theme first.

    Did you try adjusting the display icons and text to Medium or Larger? If not, try Medium first.
    Control Panel > Display > Medium -125%

    I'm guessing you mean this thread:

    That's to adjust the icon width, not height.

    Duh!! It's been so long since I set up Win 7. I changed it to Windows Classic! Got the black text. Systray icons got slightly bigger when I chose to show all icons and notifications.

    Thanks, guys
