This is for Windows XP
1. Click on Start then Control Panel.
2. If control panel is set at Classic View, then double-click on the Display icon which is shown below:
BIG ICONS - display_icon_xp.jpg
Then go to Step 3.
Click on Appearance and Themes and then click on Display.
3. A box will pop up. Click on the Settings tab.


4. Click on Advanced.


Change the DPI setting to Normal size (96 DPI). If you have the value set on anything else, text on the HUD-1 will look jumbled on the screen.
Click OK and your computer will ask you to reboot your computer. Click Yes.

Right click on the desktop --> properties --> display --> advanced --> alter the DPI to regular which i think is 96 dpi

Also there is a setting under one of the other tabs ( near display ) where you can alter icon size afaik

How to reduce ddessktop icon size?


hey wassup

theres two ways you can go at this.

1. right click on an open area on ur desktop and just adjust the icons when u hover over the [view] option

2.make sure ur desktop is the only thing visible and give it one click on an open space just to make sure nothing is selected. then hit ctrl+&
at this point to test if it's working. hold ctrl then start to move your mousewheel on your mouse and the icons will start to all magically increase and decrease in size

now option #1 is a bit more easy and its static
while option#2 is a bit more dynamic and you can really make your icons really big or really small. it's up to you.

My iphone icons are to big for the screen. How do


From the home screen, tap Settings (yeah, if you can find it — but at least they can’t delete that or any built-in application).
From Settings, hit General, then choose Reset.

From the Reset menu, choose Reset Home Screen Layout. When it asks you to confirm, tap the big red Reset Home Screen button.

And you’re done. Your iPhone’s icons will be back to the way Apple ships them
