Windows 7: reducing size of icons on desk top

reducing size of icons on desk top

when installing Windows 7 I unintentionally enlarged the size of the icons on my desktop. However, I am using the standard (100%) setting for the size of the computer screen. The icons and the side board are more than double as large as they were by Vista and XP. Rather annoying! Any ideas how to change this, or must I reinstall the entire Windows 7 program?
