Windows 7: Change icon size using a registry key change?

Change icon size using a registry key change?

HI Brink, I read through the post and although this isn't what I am wanting to do, I was wondering if you would have any imput.

I use the same Windows 7 x64 base image for all the computers at my house (I have a few). I have a mini-domain set up and I want to be able to set the icon size for the icons listed in Computer (Hard Disk Drives, Devices with Removable Storage, Network Locations) using a registry key change. I know it is easy enough to double-click the Computer icon and click View from the Menu Bar and select the size that way, but I am more interested in what registry key controls this setting. I've looked all over the registry at places I could think of and Googled a bunch of different phrases of how I think others would refer to it (which is how a happened upon your post), but all I can seem to find are how to change the Desktop icons. I'm not looking to change the icon, just how it is viewed, if that makes sense.

Do you have any suggestions on how to go about this using a registry key change?
