Changing the Size of Start Menu Icons in Windows 7 and Vista
The size of the icons on your start menu can be changed from small to large. If you want to pin a lot of icons on your start menu, it makes sense to reduce the size of icons to accommodate a greater number of icons. On the other hand, larger icons could be extremely useful especially to people with sight problems. Changing the size of the start menu icons in Windows 7 is straightforward compared to Windows Vista.
