Desktop Icon Sizes

I have just recently noticed that I am not blind and therefore don't need the desktop icons an inch across, is there any way that I can change it so they are smaller?

Hello Rangemaster,

Welcome to Seven Forums.

Also, you can hold down the control key and spin the wheel on your mouse if you have one.

Hope this helps.
