Right-click the menu and select Configure...
It's pronounced kad-eye-cha, not kada-itcha.

You'd better state what desktop and version of Mint you're using.

Cinamon 19.3. Increasing the text scaling factor to 1.2 does give to me a bit larger text, but can not go any more. Is affecting everything. There is css file to increase pixel size but do not know what file

Hi, the menu in Mint 20 / Cinnamon 4.6.x has the option to change menu icon sizes.

The Cinnamon 4.6.x menu works fine in Mint 19.3 / Cinnamon 4.4.x as a drop in replacement. Download the attached and extract the contents to ~/.local/share/cinnamon/applets/. Restart Cinnamon. Then right click the menu > configure

Thank you very much. I can see now. Why this did not come with distro?. That should be sticky as I seen a lot of people asking for menu icon size. Thanks again.

It does come with the distro - it's a new feature for Cinnamon 4.6/Mint 20.
