I switched monitors on two of my computers. The icons and bottom task bar are now too large for the smaller screen monitor. How can I change my settings to fit the items correctly on the smaller monitor?

Are you running Windows 7 or XP? Under windows 7 you just right click the taskbar, select properties and check the Use Small Icons box. Desktop icons have a similar option if you right click the desktop.

Taskbar Icons in XP have to be changed in the registry - you can find a VBS script to do this ** Here **

Using a higher desktop resolution may solve your problem as well.
