    Optical icon is WAY too TINY

    And here's a second screen shot, scaled at the maximum (350%). Got any ideas?

    Optical icon is WAY too TINY

    Guru, most other icons do indeed grow larger and look normal, even at 300%. However, for some programs (such as Adobe) I had to follow the advice found here: https://www.danantonielli.com/adobe-app-scaling-on-high-dpi-displays-fix/ I was able to find the application file (in the file containing the program), copy it and create a *.manifest file, as Dan Antonielli explains on his website. The manifest file was then placed in the program folder. That worked beautifully on a number of programs where, when the program was opened, what popped up was so tiny it was unusable. When the program was restarted, the icon was resized perfectly. I am a musician and I use Finale for composing music. The manifest file fix worked on that, as well. Perhaps it would work for this, too -- but I don't know what file controls this icon. Here's a screen shot so you can see exactly what I'm dealing with:

    Hi, Brendon. Thank you for your response. I am running Windows 10. The resolution is 3840 x 1260 (Recommended). The scale and layout is set to 300% (also Recommended). The icon in your pic is exactly the one I'm talking about. I have no idea how to make it larger. As it is, it's unusable. Got some ideas for me? Thanks!
  4. I purchased a new high-def laptop and have had to make manifest files to change the size of icons, such as those used with Adobe. Unfortunately, I don't know how to do that for the icon that appears on my screen when I insert a CD or DVD into my optical drive. Anyone else have such a problem and how did you fix it. The icon is unusable as it is tiny, tiny, tiny. Thanks!
