Large Toolbar Buttons

If the toolbar buttons on your screen are too small for your liking, you may want to make them larger. Excel makes this easy—all you need to do is follow these steps:

  1. Choose the Customize option from the Tools menu. Excel displays the Customize dialog box.
  2. Display the Options tab. (See Figure 1.)
  3. Figure 1. The Options tab of the Customize dialog box.

  4. Make sure the Large Icons check box is selected.
  5. Click on the Close button.

You should have noticed that your toolbar buttons were much larger right after step 3. This action also affects the size of toolbar buttons in all your other Microsoft Office applications, as well.

This doesnt seem to apply to Office / Excel 2013 because I dont have a CUSTOMIZE option to select from the TOOLS tab.

I can see OPTIONS in the FILE menu, but nothing after that helps to reduce (or enlarge) the size of my MS Office toolbars.

Suggestions? ALl of teh sudden all of the toolbars in MS office have doubled in size. The MS desktop is fine (ie those icons have not increased in size) It is specific to MS Office applications: Excel, Word, OneNote, Outlook . Extremely frustrating.
Help.
