Desktop Icon Resize with Mouse Wheel

Hello everyone (I'm french, excuse me for my English)

How can I disable the resizing of the desktop icons with the CTRL+Mouse wheel
without disable the mouse wheel function for other applications?

I'm not too sure you can disable it, why do you hold CTRL down when scrolling on the desktop anyway?

Tank you for your replay Mintos45

I am very much afraid you're right
I don't find anything about this on the web. This is a very great annoying because if by mistake
you click CTRL+Mouse wheel on desktop, it will mess up all the icons, and it's difficult to remember
what size was best!
Disable the Mouse wheel is not the solution for me

Yes, you can't disable that function I believe, so the best thing is to hope that you dont hold down the CTRL Key....

Yes, I believe too it's the only solution ... It is a pity, but that is the way it is

just to say, holding ctrl and scrolling when in a open window will re-size the folders/icons also.
