How about independently changing the size of each icon? Does anyone have any clue?

Hello Maxvinus, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Sorry, but the icon sizes cannot be set on a per specific icon basis.

Hello pxfragonard,

I'm afraid not. It's an all or none setting.

To make your icons larger or smaller you can also follow this steps:

1 Click the Start button, and then click Control Panel.

2 In Control Panel, make sure you are in Classic View, with all Control Panel icons showing. If not, click Switch to Classic View in the left pane of Control Panel.

3 Click Display to open the Display Properties dialog box. Click the Appearance tab, then click Effects.

4 In the Effects dialog box, select the Use large icons check box.

5 Click OK, click OK again, and then click the Close button.

Hello Jonatan,

Could you post a screenshot showing this setting?

I don't have it in my visual effects below if that was what you were referring to?

Download ICONOID.

Hilarious, you can't pay Microslop (sic) to give back this functionality, but you can get it for free from somebody else.
