While you are about, I want to reduce the size of my Win 7 desktop icons further then 100%, can I do this?
Not sure if this is what you meant, but in addition to Redsox's post above, you can right click on the Desktop and click on View and then the Large, Medium, or Small Icon size you want them to be.
