First you just right click with your mouse on an open area of your desktop, not on an icon. Then you select from the menu that pops up "properties".

After that a window will pop up with some tabs across the top and you need to click on "appearance".

you can change the font size of your desktop there and if you click on the tab in the lower right hand corner you can select "advanced"

That is where you can change the size of your icons.

In the drop down menu that is labeled "item" you need to select the "icon" choice. After that you choose the size you want right next to it in the box marked "size"

The number in that box is in pixels and it will display the current size. Just change it to what ever you want it to be and click "ok" and if it is not good for you, then you do it all over again and choose a different size.
Thats all there is to it.

let me know if you need any more help and if you found this helped you a good rating would be appreciated. Most people I have helped don't ever give me a rating :(
