by Abhishek Bhatnagar on May 31, 2009



One  of our readers Leah sent us the following Problem:

My laptop screen shows abnormal size of icons, fonts and window.



Large icon size can be because of some change of accidental settings, resolution change or some other reasons. In this article we will tell you two different ways in which you can set the icon size as per your choice.



Windows Right Click Method



Just right click on the Desktop and Select from three Sizes of the Desktop Icons as seen below:


Using this method, you can select between Large Icons / Medium Icons and Classic Icons


Windows Scroll Wheel Method




In case of you use a mouse, on a desktop or laptop:

1. Click on Desktop, hold the control key on keyboard and scroll the wheel, clockwise / anticlockwise to increase / decrease the icons size on the Desktop.


In case of a Laptop Touchpad:

1. Click on the Desktop, hold the control key and scroll up and down the vertical scroll bar at the right-end of the touch-pad.


This will change the size of your desktop icons.


Hope you find this information useful.
