The Windows 11 taskbar icons are quite small under 2k resolution, so we have to click them carefully in order not to click the wrong one. Take me as an example, I have Windows 11 computer and Macbook both, and I get use to click Mac docks. The Mac docks are big enough to be clicked, really convenient. And I searched & checked every setting for taskbar, there is no way to increase the size of taskbar icons.

There is such an option in Windows 10: disable “Use small taskbar buttons”.

Then the taskbar icons turn bigger. However, there is no such settings in Windows 11. After the investigation, I finally find a way to make Windows 11 taskbar icons bigger/larger.
