Tiny Icons [SOLVED]

I am running Linux Mint 18.3 Sylvia, XFCE
I am new to this forum and still a relative novas to Linux by about three years.  At the tender young age of 71 I have found myself having sight issues.   And My question is; How can I make the Icons on the Right side of the Panel larger, as they are quite tiny?
I have the Left side figured out.
I am not certain if the question is even a XFCE issue. I have asked the same question on the Linux Mint Forum, and have gotten unsatisfactory replies, so this a kinda of shot in the dark.

Re: Tiny Icons [SOLVED]

Hello and welcome.

Just had a look at Mint 18.3 in a VM. The default install has 3 plugins on the right side of the bottom panel. Increasing the size of the panel didn't change the size of the plugins. Here is how to fix that:

  1. Notification Area plugin: Right-click the panel and select Panel > Panel Preferences and go to the the Items tab. Double-click the Notification Area plugin and increase the "Maximum Ion Size" value to suit.
    .

  2. Date Time plugin: On the panel, right-click the time and select Properties. Change the font size to suit.
    .

  3. Indicator plugin: This one is a little tougher and not easy to size. The best you can do is scale the image, but this will blur it. To do so, add the following content to ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css (create the file if it doesn't exist):

    #indicator-button* { -gtk-icon-transform: scale(1.5); }

    ...and restart the panel:

    xfce4-panel -r

    You may need to fine tune the "1.5" to get the right size.
