Is there a way one can make the icons bigger (or even the Toolbar) a bit bigger on Logos?

In the Program Settings you should find something called "Program Scaling" - set this to a value larger than 100% and everything becomes bigger (if your books are already large enough, reduce "Content Scaling" below 100% to keep them at roughly the same size)

Mick, I apologize for not being clear. I actually intended to ask about the books etc one can save on top of the Toolbar. I've got a list of them there but they're so tiny, one has to hover the mouse over the top of them to see what they are and you know how difficult hovering the mouse over an icon can be. 

So what I'm asking for ... why do I suspect there is no way to enlarge those? Or is there?

With Program Scaling at 200% they are larger, but everything else is larger, too.

I guess that's another way of saying "Put it in the Suggestion box".  Thanks for the suggestions and efforts Mick.

One additional tip: if the icons are not sufficiently clear to distinguish the books, you may use labels (e.g. if you have NIV 1984 and NIV 2011 in your shortcuts, as I do, and find you can't differentiate, you could put "NIV84" and "newNIV" next to the icon). Of course, this uses additional space.

Logos also has a number of alternative icons, including some colorful book icons and also alphabet characters, so you could for one of these - especially if the books come from the same series or those classic bundles and thus look all the same anyway: take the shiny red book one for a very spiritful engagement, or take 1 through 9 for the volumes in a series of "works of XYZ", or the first letter of the book or the author's name.

These may help a bit - even in cases where a larger book cover icon wouldn't do in the firstplace.
