Application Menu Icon Size

Is there anyway i can change my application menu icon size (the button on the panel, not the icons in the menu) without changing the size of the panel itself? I’m trying to theme my desktop to a certain style, and changing the panel height ruins the look, but the right height for everything else makes my menu icon too small so i wanna make it bigger. I don’t mind if i have to go digging through and editing files

you can browse to other folders (say where you have your icons stashed) and choose from the list, but i think it’s still gonna scale whatever you choose.

the biggest you are going to get are icon images without any padding at the edges

for instance this is rather large png file, as you can see


but when i install this as my application menu icon it scales down to fit into the panel dimensions.
