First you might want to edit your post to remove your email address in case you begin receiving spam posts. We're a user-user forum so you won't receive personal replies unless someone request you send them a PM.
I don't know how to increase the icons on the address bar unless you change the screen resolution which will change everything.

Hi gsau22

The three icons in top right corner are called a Caption.

You can adjust the height of this particular Caption by modifying the WindowsMetrics String Value data field

The default size is -330, but the actual size can be anything from -120 to -1500

You calculate this using the formula: -15 x Pixel Size you want, thus in the Default size of -330 the formula is:
  • -15 x 22 = -330 [Pixel Height is 22 and the Value data field will have -330]

You could open the Registry Editor and navigate to:
  • Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics
  • Then in right pane modify the String named CaptionHeight
    • This is done by right-clicking on CpationHeight and selecting Modify then: -
    • Entering the new value you want into the Value data field and clicking OK then: -
    • Press F5 and now close the Registry Editor
    • Now sign-out then sign-in again for changes to take affect.


A simpler way though is to do the following:
  • Press Windows key + S
  • In the Search field type command
  • In the search results, right-click on Command Prompt and select Run as administrator
  • Click yes to the UAC prompt
  • Now in the Administrator: Command Prompt console type or copy & paste the following:
Code:
REG ADD "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics" /v CaptionHeight /t REG_SZ /d -1500 /f

Note: Replace -1500 with the Pixel size you want

Press Enter key to execute

Type exit and press Enter key to close console

Sign-out then sign-in again for changes to take affect.

Merged the two identical threads.
Please try to avoid cross or double posting, especially when your post has been responded to.
It just creates confusion and diverts from the topic
