I need to resize the Illustrator's swatch palette icons which are too small on my Mac. How can I do that?

Once I saw a PC with huge icons and I realized that I could do the same on my Mac.

    I don't know how to make the icons on the Tool Palette bigger. I must say that I can see the tools just fine on my 15' non-retina MacBook. Maybe you can just decrease the resolution on your screen in general? Or use glasses ;-) Mar 10, 2014 at 19:09
  • glasses, that's it! :p Mar 10, 2014 at 23:34
