Agreed. Same issue on Redhat EL6. I adjusted the fonts and the dpi settings. Neither affected the toolstrip. Help MATLAB!

You can change it through you OS configuration. Matlab does not control the sizes of toolstrip icons since that is a parameter controlled by the OS.

If you are a Windows User, go to Control Panel->Screen. Set the configuration that best suits your needs

Hi, What would you suggest for a GNU/Linux user? specifically, if the OS is Ubunti 12.04. Response will be really useful. Regards

Is there really no way to change the size of icons on the command ribbon?

I am using a surface pro 3 at native resolution and the matlab interface was just too small to use (in other programs, i have no difficulty with this).

I managed to change the size of all text and some parts of the matlab UI, but not the command ribbon. In solid edge for example, there was an option to increase the size of ribbon icons by 2X, which worked excellent. Is there no such option in matlab 2014?
