Change Icon Size in Folders

You can change the icon size to pretty much any size you like using CtrlMouseWheelZoom.exe

It's an AutoHotKey script compiled as an executable and you can download it here:

How to assign browser-like zooming hotkeys for resizing icons on the Desktop and in the Explorer window in Windows 8.1 and Windows 8 | Winaero

In addition to the video shown in the above link here's another video (below) showing the script in action on my machine.

Folder is set to "General Items" and "Details View"

Icon size is remembered on a per folder basis (Folder Template Discovery is off). Not sure what happens if you've got Folder Template Discovery switched on.

Note: CtrlMouseWheelZoom.exe will run until you kill the process via task manager or other method.

I see what you mean now. If you change icon size details view is not retained. I don't know of a workaround.

Tell folder to remember view type ie details or thumb
I am sure that XP used to remember whether a folder was last viewed in details/thumb preview mode etc. Windows 7 seems to just switch it on or off for all folders. Is there a way to get explorer to remember the way it viewed the folders the last time you were in that folder. Cheers, Lee
