How do I go about making my Start button a bit bigger?

My Start button is just a little smaller than the size of the taskbar. I've uploaded a screenshot where you can see this. If I want to make it the same size as the taskbar it seems I would need to know the height of the taskbar but I don't know how I would get this information.

Can anyone give me some tips?

I think you have one of the basic themes activated in Windows 10. Here is what the lower corner looks like -- and it is not in PSP:

As you can see, it is entirely OS-dependent.

I use the Windows 7 Aero Theme & the start button is a bit bigger as shown.

Just curious, but why do you want to make it the same size as the taskbar? It's always at far left so you know it's the Start button even if you find it might not be as easy to read because of its size.

I will leave as is. I noticed that when I make it bigger the font gets blurry.
