Windows 7: Icon Size / Advanced customisation of appearance

Icon Size / Advanced customisation of appearance

Hi,

(Great forum, sorry if this has been raised before, but I searched and couldn't find it)

Is there a way to change icon size in windows 7? Not as in change from medium icons to small icons, but change the default size of the medium icons? I'm finding they're taking up too much space to be convenient...

I really want the icon layout with the windows xp icon sizes. There are actually several things I want to change - ideally, I'm looking for the "advanced customisation" options that in windows xp could be found under appearance settings. I can't seem to find these anywhere in windows 7.

Hi Misterjjones and welcome to the forums,

You can hold on Ctrl and use the scroll wheel on your mouse to have whatever size icons you want.
