Windows 7: Simultaneous large and small desktop icons?

Simultaneous large and small desktop icons?

I know I can change all the icon sizes. I was wondering if its possible to have different sized icons on the desktop at the same time?
Either inherently through windows 7 or through a 3rd party app?
I'm running a business, I would like to have all business related icons large and all the others small.

Thanks.

Hi and welcome to the forums!

My first suggestion might be a bit complex but I'll suggest it anyway. This tutorial - Replace Vista's missing Computer desktop icon with a custom gadget on the Windows Sidebar | TechRepublic - details how to create a gadget to launch my computer. Now, this should theoretically work for any application and on windows 7. To could then launch your program through the newly created gadget.

If that is a little bit too difficult there is a program by the company Stardock called fences. Download here: Fences - Windows Desktop Organization Software. This allows you to organise your desktop more efficiently.

Hopefully one of these will solve your issue
