Windows 11 scale factor 100% 125% 150% 200% 250% 300% 400%
Context menu, title bar, system tray 16px 20px 24px 32px 40px 48px 64px
Taskbar, search results, Start all apps list 24px 30px 36px 48px 60px 72px 96px
Start pins 32px 40px 48px 64px 80px 96px 256px


Apps should have, at the bare minimum: 16x16, 24x24, 32x32, 48x48, and 256x256.

This covers the most common icon sizes, and by providing a 256px icon, ensures Windows should only ever scale your icon down, never up.
