Resize Search Box and Address Box Win7

Resize address bar and search box in Windows File Explorer in Windows 7.  I get the double arrow to resize, but nothing happens when I drag it.  I have tried unlocking the toolbars, but this does not change the action.  My address area is 1/4 the size of the search box and looks strange.

Set your DPI down to 185,  i set mine to 185 and the issue went away.  anything between 185-200 and the issue comes back.


185 is an acceptable DPI,  just a workaround.

and slightly faster than a SFC or repair install,  which does fix the issue.
