Desktop Icons are too Small or too Big

Cause:

The size of the icons on your desktop is determined by the resolution settings of your video card. If everything seems too big or too small, all you probably need to do is choose a different resolution so that items appear the size you want.

Follow the Below Steps To fix the size problem:

1. Click Start--> Control Panel.


2. Open the Display icon by double-clicking it--> Click the
Settings tab.


3. On the Screen Resolution setting--> use the slider bar to choose a different resolution- 800 × 600 pixels is right for most people. If you have a larger monitor (19" +), consider using a higher resolution.


4. If that does not work--> change the Dots Per Inch (DPI) settings for your display--> On the Display tab--> click the Advanced button.


5. This opens an Advanced Properties window--> Click the General tab--> If you want to make items on your desktop larger--> change the DPI Setting using the drop-down menu--> You'll need to restart your computer for the changes to take effect.
