Try this.

System Settings/Application Appearance/Icons/Advanced/Size
Then select size from the drop down for which ever area that you want it. ( Desktop, Toolbar, Main Toolbar etc. )


Hope this is what your looking for.

I don't know if this is related to some kind of language barrier, but bumping a question and saying it is not a hard one looks a bit impolite. Moreover, how can you say it's not a hard question if you've not been able to answer it yourself?
Just saying.

Well they are simple icons, is not rocket science to have an option from 'big' to 'small'.

M$$$ 7 has an option to show the icons on the menu small via right-click -> properties. I've tried that KDE place to change ALL icons to small but it wont change the icons in the menu.

Problem is that in netbook KDE's menu icons take halve the screen when opened.

How can I do this in KDE?

thanks

It's not rocket science to read kde manuals either.

right, this uses small icons, but changes menu layout to old style. I want modern menu with smaller icons, just like m$$$ 7 does. The modern menu with sliding content when hovering over icons and all bells and whistles.

thanks.
