    Is it possible to increase the size of the sidebar menu icons and text. I was looking at my sister Tiger layout and those icons were way bigger. On my macbook they are microscopic.

    Is it my macbook resolution or is it leopard making it small?

    Thanks for your help in advance. Forum search turned up nothing.

    Is your default Finder window size too small? If all of the sidebar icons won't fit at the standard resolution (32x32?), it will auto-shrink them to fit.

    They are much, much smaller in Leopard than they are in Tiger.

    It will? When I add more icons I just get a scroll bar on the right side ...the icons never change size.

    As far as I know, there's no way to change their size - it's just the new design of Leopard.

    Sorry...I scanned the OP too quickly. They'll auto-shrink in Tiger, but apparently Leopard is rather different...I'm stuck in the past. :eek:
