Icons on desktop, too big, letters in 2 lines pp RRS feed

  • Question

  • Even at the borders right and left icons cannot be placed near enough as in 7 or 8.1

    Icons are too big and letters do not ! become small when icons get smaller e.g.

    by alt gr and mouse 

    or by registry.

    Is there solution or can this by changed by some updates ??

  • It is as I said !

    It is not understandable ??

    This is a well known problem with Win 10 !

    Icons too big, even after changes in registry.

    Letters double-spaced ! My desktop is private therefore nb gets a screenshot from that !

  • On my screen are private data !

    By Win 7 I have 24 icons at the right border and left border, altogether about 90,

    small. small text = ok.

    At Win 10, I only get about 12 each side, icons too big and text at 2 lines.

    Not to change.  Others in German forums say this is a well known problem.

  • Icons in 10 go small but letters do not change to small that is the problem.

    And at the edges of screen distance cannot be changed.

    In 7 there are no restrictions and letters do automatically change to small with icons.
