One thing which really annoys me about Windows Vista desktop is the size of the icons. Perhaps I’m too used to Windows XP at its icon size. If you are looking for a way to make your icons look smaller in Window Vista. Here is a simple trick for you.
All you have to do is to hold down the control key, left-click on the desktop, and then move your mouse’s scroll wheel to change the icon size. Same applies for icons in a folder. You can make the icons so small that they’re of little practical use, or so large that they should come with a pair of clown shoes to complete the package – see screen-shot
