Depending on the resolution on your monitor and your personal preferences, you can adjust the size that Word uses for displaying icons by following these steps:
Figure 1. The Options tab of the Customize dialog box.
You can also, if you prefer, change the icon size in a macro. This is done by setting the .LargeButtons property of the CommandBars collection to either True or False. The correct syntax follows:
CommandBars.LargeButtons = True
This line turns on the large icons, whereas setting the property to False turns them off.
