Icons in desktop are too big

I have just installed Windows 7 on my computer.
I'am dualbooting Windows 7 and XPx64.

Something I noticed, is that the icons in my desktop are bigger in Windows 7 than in XP.

How can I adjust the size ?

icons

Hold down ctrl and scroll mouse wheel

then you can adjust the horizontal and vertical in personalized/windows color/advanced settings to get icons closer together

Right click an open area on the desk top. Go to View and select the icon size you want.
