    The icons in the Notification area (next to the time) of the taskbar,are too small to be legible. the rest of the Taskbar icons are OK. The hover text is also too small

    Tried to widen the taskbar - no change. Under View - changing the size, only changes the desktop icon size.

    Any thoughts? Thanks

    It could be that the resolution is too small for the monitor. Just asking, what is the size and type of the monitor anyway?

    Right-click your desktop > Screen Resolution. Click the drop-down box next to Resolution, and change it to a lower value. 1024x768 for standard monitors, or 1280x768 for widescreens is reasonable.

    No worries. Being with my dad, you soon learn the trade-off between more visible text/icons, and usable desk space.
