Windows 7: Icon Size won't save in 7068?

Icon Size won't save in 7068?

I'm loving the latest build of Win 7. Overall seems very stable and much less buggy (especially from 7057, which was . . . not great).

I'm noticing that my icons will not stay the size I've changed them to when I restart. Any ideas how to fix that? (I know, bigger fish to fry, but this one's just irritating. )

Haven't been able to replicate this problem (x-64) but even if the icon sizes change on the desktop it's really quick to reset them

just hold CTRL key down while scrolling the mouse wheel -- makes the Icons bigger or smaller as you want.

It could be that you haven't saved the theme. I changed the font size once but it would not stick - every boot it would revert. I went to personalization and made the change then made sure to save the theme with the new setting, then it stuck.

Hmmm. Will see if doing a theme save helps (I change my icon size with the CRTL/Mouse Wheel - it's a great shortcut!)...

Well, that seems to have worked. Never had that one happen before. Thanks!
