Two ways:
right click on the desktop -> view -> small icons
-or-
single left click on an icon, hold control and scroll down on the wheel on your mouse

and welcome to the best forum in the world!

Hello Pinto, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You can use the same method as in this tutorial for Vista to do so.
