alangeorge, I'm not positive this'll solve your problem, but think it will. RIGHTCLICK on a blank area of the taskbar and unlock it. Then drag/drop it to the spot you like best and lock it. Windows should 'remember' where it is and put it there on the next boot.
If it doesn't 'remember', do it again and this time use the 'exit' option under 'file' rather than the handier 'X' (only needs to be done once). That'll force Windows to 'remember'. Don't think you'll need to do that, but...

The System Tray (aka Notification area) refers to the right end of the taskbar by the clock. Is that what you're asking about? or do you mean ALL the icons on the taskbar?

Try right clicking on the Start button, then click Properties

or....

Try going to Control Panel > Display > Appearance > Advanced

or....

Try right clicking in the Quick Launch area, then View > Large Icons

That site says to choose personalization in the control panel but I don't see it, myself.

Note that this will change ALL settings, ie; Systray, Desktop icons, etc.

Right click on an empty area of the Desktop. Choose Properties, then Settings, then Advanced. Under Display, choose Custom Settings from the drop-down box. Change it from 96 DPI to a number you're comfortable with.

It's a good day when you learn something
