Default Smaller ICONS

i would like to scale down the tool icons. is there a way to do this without replacing the bitmaps? i want to retain the shelf without taking too much space.

i have tried looking at the MELscripts in the preferences ... there are height and width settings for each button. i edited them and they keep returning back to 34. are these the right params? (sorry i am a maya newbie i dont know any MEL)

or perhaps there are downloadable alternative icons somewhere?

thanks in advance.

Get a huge monitor and set the resolution to something like 2048x1536 and you get relatively small icons

just kidding

Why don't you just bind hotkeys for hide and show UI elements commands?
