    How to re-size the Taskbar Icons on Windows 8 System?

    Am not sure what happened to my system (windows 8 os), suddenly the bottom taskbar icons became very short and I have not set any thing related to it for this appearance, it automatically changed to small icons. So tell me how should I resize them, where will be the related settings available on my system. Please don't tell me that this is a problem of operating system, I cannot reinstall the operating system again, provide a solution.

    1) if you're on start screen, then go for desktop

    2) Right click on empty area on task bar and select Lock the taskbar which is got tick mark with blue colour and tap on it.

    3) Now point on edge of task bar where mouse pointer changes like double headed arrow then left click on mouse and drag upwards.
