Windows 7: Changing the ICON Size to Between Small and Medium

Changing the ICON Size to Between Small and Medium

I'm using Windows 7 x64, and have no trouble changing the size of the desktop icons with the mouse wheel. However, in any other explorer window, I have the choice between small, where I can't see the icon really, and medium, which is big and the size of a tile. Is there any way to change THAT size rather than the desktop icon size?

Thank you

As far as I'm aware the only sizes in explorer are the ones listed, there is no scroll option like there is on the desktop just the slider bar

Yep, you don't have to use the presets, just grab the slide control and stick it where's best for you
