  • Right click on the desktop then select View > Small Icons.

    Use CTRL+Scroll Wheel to adjust the icon size past the three options within the context menu.

  • No I mean beyind the choices that are already there, even with the smallest choice, they take up a lot of room on the desktop. I'm gald I dont have them set to "large", I wouldnt be able to have more than a few on there then  lol  . the icon size (even small ) seems larger to me than other windows versions. I wondered if anybody found a tweak to decrease the default "small" icon size.
