    You can easily decrease the size of sidebar icons but not by decreasing the text size of Folder names in Finder. To do the same, open "System Preference" and tap click on "General" tab. Have a look on the option titled as "Sidebar Icon Size", you will see three option i.e Small,Medium and Large in the drop down menu so choose "Small" option. If you are facing any trouble then check the below given image which shows the demonstration.

    ================================================== ================================================== ==

    :: First close all windows.

    :: Then move to the system preference menu in to Mac-book.

    :: Once the system preference menu is open then you have to select the “General” option.

    :: Now under it, choose the Sidebar Icon Size that you want to adjust..

    :: Then here you can see the Small,Medium and Large option, so you can select the Small from the Mac.

    :: This way you can change the size of sidebar icons in MAC OK.

    Done
