    Explorer Quick Access Toolbar (Ribbon) icon dimensions?


    What are the dimensions to the Quick Access Toolbar Icons?
    I've tried switching them to (256x256 Pixeled Icons)... the program confirms it
    was changed successfully...but it never does...There appears to be a variation of form factors..
    I sort of need a template as a starting point...

    Did you run the reg fix ? I presume you visited THIS link on DeviantArt

    I can set up it up after I have disabled my "ribbon disabler" and give it a bash. Won't be for an hour or two as I have some IRL stuff to do.

    You know that was posted in April 2012 for the consumer preview and also says in the comments section that it wont work on Win 8 RTM. I gave it a try and yeah , It wont work. I cant merge the reg fix ? Obviously I need that to take ownership of the files.

    Not sure what to suggest apart from locate the relevant .dlls manually and edit them with ResHacker.

    Sorry.
