  • This being of concern I have prepared the following tutorial in effort to show an effective method for modifiying the size of desktop icons without the use of a scroll wheel. This being said let us commence with step 1.

    Step 1.
    Right click on the desktop.

    Step 2.
    Select view.

    Step 3.
    Choose from either small, medium or large icons.

  • What if your mouse doesn't have a scroll wheel.  Is there another way to accomplish this?

  • Mr. Seven, this is correct but apparently you have a much finer control of the icon size if you use a scroll wheel.  Is there a way to have this same control of the icon size without using the scroll wheel, instead of just the three choices in your tutorial?

  • This is very true, the only way I know of is to navigate to the actual desktop folder (users\%username%\Desktop), create an icon and click on the upper right hand view selector and adjust the fine tune slider be moving it with the mouse pointer as you would in other explorer windows.
