Ribbon Icon & Font Size

The size of your ribbon icons and font is determined primarily by your screen resolution.  If you change the resolution, everything (i.e., ribbon icons, fonts, text will change).

The following method will change (increase or decrease) your ribbon icons and fonts without affecting your screen resolution.
