Is there any way to make the icons in the menu bars larger--they're about 1 pt in size and I really have to strain to discern which is which. I've already tried re-installing FM and also Edit/Preferences/Interface.
Are you using Fm 2015? You have two sizes for the icons but it looks like you already found that in Prefs > Interface. Just confirming that the size set to large, and you restarted the software after the change?
Is this a new issue because you recently moved to a 4K display? One of the new features in Fm 2017 is support for these HiDPI displays.
Support for high resolution displays
Now work with the full clarity of high definition displays (up to 4K - 3840 x 2160), as FrameMaker automatically scales to fit the system resolution. Enjoy the new interface with crisp icons and a richer contrast ratio.
I'm using 2015. I re-downloaded onto a new Win10 computer with 1920 x 1080
resolution (and restarted after attempts to change the icon size).

You might want to experiment with changing the Compatibility settings in your FM shortcut - there's a setting concerning high DPI displays in there that had an impact on older versions of FM.
What about customizing the toolbar icons?
In FM 2017, the default toolbar icons seems to be limited to small and monochrome:
Although these properties can be changed in an editor (Monochrome -> Colored, Small -> Large), after a Framemaker restart, they are ressetted to Monochrome and Small. No default colored big icons for nobody anymore?
In Fm 2017 you use the Windows display preferences to change size. Here's an explanation and video
I watched the video in the Tech Comm Tools reply, and I have the following observations:
All in all, the decisions made about icons in FrameMaker 2017 are an epic fail.
Nice suggestion, never knew there was such a request form. I just submitted three.
Here's a suitable workaround if you don't mind the pixels upscaling for your menu bars.
