Windows 11 problems.

1st - Am unable to use the Ctrl V & C shortcuts - but and here is the clincher, I was able to use them here to login. Am told to allow shortcut keys in power shell - but locating it and in Admin mode is like driving in a detour zone.

2nd - How to increase the size of the Icons that are on the desktop. Forgot how I did so in Windows 10, but things are different in 11.

Assistance is deeply appreciated, Mindblower!

Hey MB,

To change the size of desktop icons; right-click on the desktop and select View from the menu.

With the Ctrl V & C shortcuts; are they not working universally (across the board) or only not working with Command Prompt and PowerShell?

Thank you Jim. The Ctrl keys are now working just fine. Guess the reboot fixed the problem. As for the Icon size, Small is tiny,Medium is small, and Large is Jumbo. Thanks for the assist, Mindblower!

Jim. I have two more problems with 11. How to enlarge the icons on the taskbar and when a new windows opens, it is extremely small with the contents even smaller. Thanks, Mindblower!

Hey MB,

Sounds like you are working with a small monitor/screen?

You can increase the size of Taskbar icons via a registry hack - this article will show you how and provide a downloadable file to do the job for you: https://www.elevenforum.com/t/change-size-of-taskbar-icons-in-windows-11.45/

However, you can change the size of everything, including Taskbar icons, by changing the display scale setting in Windows 11.

Navigate to Settings > Display > Scale & layout. Expand the dropdown menu under "Scale" and choose a size greater than 100%. Changes are in real time so you'll be able to see the differences immediately and choose a size that suits.

Hi MB!

You can change the size of the Desktop icons by clicking anywhere on an empty spot on your Desktop, then holding down the CTRL key while spinning your mouse wheel.

HTH,
Richard
