Windows 7: Help with icons please and thank you!

Windows 7 Home Premium x64
Help with icons please and thank you!

I was just wondering if there is a way to individually set icon sizes on the desktop. I know that you can right-click the desktop and select view and select Large icons, but can you individually set icons to their largest size? The Recycle Bin for example: Is there a way to set the Recycle Bin to its largest size without affecting any of the other icons on the desktop?


Ok so I just discovered that there is also a way to hold Ctrl on the desktop and use the scroll wheel to change icon size, but that still only affects all of the icons at the same time.
