How to change the size of the icons in the notification area of the Panel (I've added a screenshot).

I've tried to change the size of the top bar too but failed. If you can help me with that as well please do tell.

  • You could have a look at the setting for "Scale of menus and titlebars" - note that this will make many things bigger / smaller, not just the icons. – JonasCz - Reinstate Monica Oct 12 '16 at 5:51
  • @JonasCz yup, mentioned that already. That scales up overall User Interface though, including the bottom launcher – Sergiy Kolodyazhnyy Oct 12 '16 at 5:53
  • Actually . . . this gives me an idea . . . – Sergiy Kolodyazhnyy Oct 12 '16 at 5:56
  • Nah, I tried command line ways, i tried compizconfig - nothing there. The only way to get around this is to use the "Scale of menus and titlebars" but then decrease the size of icons on launcher via Settings->Appearance menu. So that's something we have to live with - menu and title bar as well as launcher have to be scaled separately – Sergiy Kolodyazhnyy Oct 12 '16 at 6:09
  • This question has infor about menu bar size of Unity, not Icon though askubuntu.com/questions/342734/increase-menu-bar-size?rq=1 – Anwar Oct 12 '16 at 6:51

short answer : those cannot change size. You can change their style with themes, but then size is fixed.

What can be done, however, is to use Settings->Display options to scale top panel up , but that will scale up over all UI, so this might not be exactly what you want

  • @HashikDonthineni nothing embarrassing here :) Unity overall is very configurable, but unfortunately top panel is just something fixed. Been glad to help :) – Sergiy Kolodyazhnyy Oct 12 '16 at 6:15
