On my 13" laptop with touchscreen it is hard to hit the windows button controlls with my fingres. I am searching for a way to change the size of the close/minimize/maximize buttons.

I created a .config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css and tried to tweak the CSS. With:

headerbar.titlebar button.titlebutton.close image,
headerbar.titlebar button.titlebutton.maximize image,
headerbar.titlebar button.titlebutton.minimize image {
    min-height: 32px;
    min-width: 26px;

I was able to resize the buttons, but the underlying icons are still the same. It is now easier to hit the buttons, but I would prefer to have bigger icons as well.

I played also with:

headerbar.titlebar button.titlebutton.close,
headerbar.titlebar button.titlebutton.maximize,
headerbar.titlebar button.titlebutton.minimize {
   padding: 9px;

which did not increase the icons size, and did not work as well across different apps
