Windows Explorer Icon Spacing

Is there anyway to increase the 'spacing' of icons in Windows Explorer.

Hi Harrismith,

Have you seen this forum yet? Explorer Icon View - How to distance icons, more text?

It looks like there's no real solution but depending on what your goal is, you can try holding Ctrl and using the scroll wheel to change icon size.

Cheers,

Walker

No I hadn't seen that 'post'.
Seems like there are a lot of folk wanting to space their icons.
I suppose we'll have to wait for Microsoft to fix it/bend to public demand - again!!!
Cheers anyhow.

Hi Harri!
It is very easy with Tuneup Utilities. System Elements > appearence of icons > icon spacing, and thats all

You sure that's not just for desktop icons?

Extremely sorry. I forgot that in 7 it is not possible to change explorer icons without adjusting the view slide
