How do I reduce the desktop icon size in Windows 7?


Windows 7 allows users to change the size of their desktop icons to make them easier to see, or to accommodate more icons on their desktop. To change the size of your desktop icons, follow these steps:

1. Right click on the desktop and select “Personalize” from the menu.
2. On the left side of the Personalization window, click on “Change Desktop Icons”.
3. On the Desktop Icon Settings window, select the icons you want to change the size of, and then choose the size you want to make them.
4. Click “OK” when you’re done.

You can also resize desktop icons by right-clicking on an icon, selecting “Properties”, and then clicking on the “Customize” tab. On the Customize tab, there is a “Change Icon” button that you can use to select the size of your icon.

If you want to change the size of all of your desktop icons, you can do this by right-clicking on the desktop, selecting “View”, and then selecting one of the size options from the drop-down menu. For example, “Large Icons” will make all of your desktop icons larger, while “Small Icons” will make them smaller.

You can also use the “Show Desktop Icons” option to hide or show your desktop icons. This can be helpful if you want to free up some space on your desktop, or if you don’t want your icons to be visible.

Finally, if you’re an IT administrator, you can use Group Policy to control the size of desktop icons. You can find the settings in the following location: Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Desktop > Desktop > Desktop Icon Size.

By following these steps, you can easily change the size of your desktop icons in Windows 7.
