Icon Size,Icon Spacing settings? Please Help me Please

Wow I've Googled this one to death so desperation mode is on.

Here is where the settings I'm speaking of are located...

Control Panel->>Personalization-->>"Widnows Color">>Advanced Appearance Settings>>
Then select ICON
then change the setings for Horizontal Icon Spacing and Vertical Icon Spacing.

There are the default setting I can't find.

So, what is/are the default Windows 7 settings for the following desktop options.

1. Icon SIZE (and the "Font" and "Font Size" for it)
2. Icon Spacing Horizontal
3. Icon Spacing Vertical

And if possible, what are the Windows 7 defaults numbers/settings for the entire Control Panel->>Personalization-->>"Widnows Color">>Advanced Appearance Settings>> Section??


Thanks.

The below site shows another way to further adjust the size of the icons on the desktop. Hold the control key and turn the mouse wheel in either direction. How To Change Icon Spacing & Size in Windows 7 - HowToInWindows.com

Let's not forget the right click on the desktop to the pop-up and View, where you can change from Large, Medium, or Classic - along with some other good old calssical settings.
