How to I reduce the oversized icons in the tool bar?
How do I remove the Capture, Copy All, and Share icons from the tool bar? 
How do I get the tool properties back in the tool bar instead of taking a large chunk of space to the side? 
How do I at least shrink the tool properties side bar?How do I get the Library icon off of the tool bar and just in the menu as an option?

AFAIK you can't do any of those things.  Your only option is to turn off the labels on the toolbar icons.  That will get you some space back.



I assume you have a small laptop screen?  Responsive capabilities just don't exist.  There is an assumption that high volume users will ten to have large screens. 

I'm with you, but at the opposite end of the scale.  I'd like to make more of my screen real estate by adding a second row of toolbar icons and increasing the width of the right hand panel

Thanks for the hint, but removing the labels helped surprisingly little since they are not removeable on the stupid copy all, share, capture, and library icons.  

I work sometimes with a separate larger monitor and sometimes on a smallish laptop.  Even on the big screen, I do not max windows.  I usually have a large number windows open and need to be able to hop around and compare.  

You wouldn't need a second line if you could remove the fixed labels and undesired icons, and could shrink the size of the actual icon.

The interface seems to be designed for a mobile device.  I have come to loathe these interfaces on Windows.  This menu far less usable than the previous format in this environment.

I am with you.  The dissent over the new UI has been significant but the UI ain't gonna change.  The best we can do is suggest the changes we need.
