Windows 7: Enlarging Icons in Video folder

Enlarging Icons in Video folder

Hi, First Post
At 72 I don'see as well as I used to, but I'm not blind either. I tried enlarging the icons on the computer but it looks ridiculous and hurriedly changed it back to normal.

What I'd like to know is, can I change the icons in my video folder and make just that folder large icons by default as I download a lot of YouTube video tutorials and its hard to distinguish them when putting them into their category folders when there are so many (I try to keep it to a minimum, but I'm so busy these days it quickly gets out of hand).

Its great to see those video icons larger than the rest in the computer.

Thanks a lot.
