    I have tried searching and the only hits I get are how to make the icons on the task bar smaller (which I have done). But how do I make the icons on the desktop smaller? They seem ungodly large I can only get 7 icons going down on my screen.

    Any ideas?

    Sorry for the basic question, but I can't seem to find the answer anywhere.

    Click on the desktop then hold control and scroll your mouse wheel to resize.

    indeed, all it does is chance the font size.
