Hi so I updated to mojave and it seems the icons in the dock are smaller. Is there anyway to increase size of the icons in the dock in Mojave? Please advise. Thanks!

The setting is right where it's been for the last 17 years: in System Preferences - Dock.
Alternatively you can drag the dock bigger/smaller in that area between the applications and the folders/trash.

Yes thanks I checked the dock settings but sliding the icon to larger size settings doesn't seem to have any affect on the icon sizes.. why so?

Maybe there's no more space on your screen left?
Mojave adds an extra four icons to your dock: News in the applications section and a new section for recent applications with three more icons.

You can disable the latter in the System Settings which might help if your dock is simply too full and already spans the entire width/height of your display.

So i disabled recent applications from dock, and don't see the News app. This dock with same icons was larger in High Sierra though.. why problems now?
