My applications folder is on the dock and when I click on it the applications come up but the icon size is too big, is there anyway to make these icons a lot smaller? Nothing has been retouched, just cropped and layered to contrast between a large menu in the back, the default size menu on this Display in the middle and a smaller sized menu up front.
There is no way to change the size of the icons in the grid itself the keyboard shortcut that worked in macOS Lion no longer does , but you can change it to list view by right-clicking on the folder icon and selecting List. This will result in a list similar to a Finder view, with much smaller icons. Edit: After further testing, the commands that I said no longer worked from Lion actually do work, at least in my testing in macOS El Capitan They did not work initially, and when they finally did start working it took several seconds for anything to happen, though now they seem to be working ok.

Finder has a relatively short app menu, so activating Finder is a quick way to see more menu bar icons. And the built-in Maps app has an even shorter app menu. Bartender collapses the menu bar items into a submenu, which will let you see more of them without being hidden by app menus. That's quite unfortunate.
I am using a vertical orientation on my display which has a x resolution x in vertical. This isn't something I can change. I was hoping I would be able to make the status bar multi-row or that there would be at a minimum some way of scrolling through them, but I take that this is not currently possible?
You can also remove system menu bar items to free some space; for example if you don't change the language often, or don't use Time Machine, you can command-drag the items off the bar to remove them, leaving more space for other apps' items.
