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.

What are agricultural products grown to be sold?


That's a highly variable thing. Many crops, like corn for your cornflakes or tortillas, are grown on huge agribusiness farms with thousands of acres of the same monocrops growing. Corn is generally grown in the Midwest, such as Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska, etc.
Fresh fruits and vegetables are sometimes grown the same way, and can come from areas as varied as from the Northeast to California. However, many times, if you watch for them, you can find fresh fruits and vegetables from small, local farmers in your grocery stores or even at roadside stands. Those are often grown on small acreage plots very close to where they are sold, often grown combined with complimentary plants, and are picked and sold at their peak of freshness rather than trucked over thousands of miles.

Restore active desktop


As the icons have increased in size that means ur screen resolution has changed

Goto desktop
right click on desktop  >>  Properties  >>  settings tab 
now u will find the Screen Resolution adjust it according to ur requirement and u will find ur icon size small again  ( if u increase the screen resolution)

For internet settings Create a New Connection Wizard
or u can check from Network Connection whether ur Local Area Network is Enable or not.

Thank You
