  • Maybe you've got a whole bunch of stuff you want to see on your Start menu, or perhaps it's a matter of personal preference. Either way, today's tip is going to show you how to shrink your Start Menu icons in Windows Vista and 7.

    Let's give it a try!

    First, Right-Click on a blank area of your Taskbar and select “Properties”.

    A window will pop up.

    Select the Start Menu Tab and click the “Customize” button.

    Once in this window, scroll the list all the way down to the bottom.

    You should see the Customize Start Menu Windows Tab with different Options.

    Just un-check the check-box that says “Use Large Icons” and hit OK, then Apply then OK again.

    You've just gone to Lilliput! If you don't like what you see, then follow the same steps and re-check the box

    Voila!..Some simple steps to make your daily travels on the computer easier!..

    If you have difficulties - call or email me - and we can either walk you thru the process on the phone or in a chat room - or we can connect together remotely using various programs available that are non-intrusive but easy to use such at Team 5 Viewer!.. or Netmeeting..

    For further details - email me direct and I will attempt to answer you as soon as possible.. I promise at least a 24 hour return on your email.

    Thank you for coming to Thumbtack - Below enter your feedback.. If you have a better way to do things - then lets hear it!.. I am always open to suggestions.
