How to Change the Size of Icons on Dock Panel in Ubuntu Linux

This article describes steps one can take to change the size of icons on the dock or launcher in Ubuntu Linux.

By default, Dock (or apps launcher) in Ubuntu Linux has applications icons that are left aligned or docked on the left of the screen. You can move the dock to the bottom or right size of the screen if you want.

On the other hand, if the icons are too small, you can increase them so that you can see clearly.
