I rebuilt a Windows 2000 from scratch. All installs are new. The icons in the system tray, next to the clock are very small (about the size of a pinhead). In addition for all windows the minimize, maximize, and close buttons the top right corner of the screen are also very small. There is no effect in the quick launch area or anywhere else on the desktop.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

have you tried a different monitor. seen a couple of times where half the screen does funny stuff. otherwise look at the default settings for the desktop, may just have to reset them, otherwise I think the install needs a repair, could be because bad sector on disk, Cd, or just didnt load right.

    Right click screen and choose properties (or go to control panel and choose display). Click the appearance tab and make sure the 'font' size is normal. Then choose any of the alternative color schemes. If that doesn't dix it go to 'advanced' and check each seletion for size parameters on font and icons. Good Luck.

    It is a desktop settings issue. 1. Right click on the desktop, select properties. 2. Select the Appearance tab. 3. In the "item" drop down list, select the "Caption Buttion" entry. 4. Change the size back to the default of 18. This should fix the issue.
