Another question that I've so far been unable to resolve: Does anyone know if it's possible to affect icon size for a single panel only? If I change the panel size, all icons remain at the same size. I am trying to achieve a panel that has large icons and displays all running applications, without affecting the menu/icon size for other menus and panels.
My guess is that it must be possible to set a variable somewhere, that will be private or local to the panel that I want to affect, though I have so far been unable to find out how I would go about this. I do not want to change the size of all menu and panel icons globally...
Is there a variable / name that I can use is Applications -> Settings -> Settings Editor ... ->... xfce4-panel -> panels -> panel-2 ?
Alternatively, can I modify gtkrc to implement the change?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I should add that all I have on the panel is the 'window buttons' item. If I resize other panels, such as the panel containing my 'applications menu' and 'logoff' buttons, they enlarge as you would expect - it is only the panel containing the window buttons that will not resize correctly...

I'm not sure if I got what you're looking for but you can, for instance, enlarge the panel and put the window buttons in two rows, I think. Like in http://www-test.xfce.org/about/tour
-edit- I think the window buttons automatically stack depending on the panel width.

Thanks for replying. What I'm actually aiming to do is to modify the icon size for each 'button' on the 'windows-buttons item, so that I can have large buttons/icons for just that panel. Similar to as is described in the following link:
... as far as I can tell, the above method will affect a global change, whereas I would like to be specific to the single panel that I am using. I don't know if this is possible, but my instincts tell me that it should be - I'm not yet certain how though... I have a lot more exploring to do...
