I decided to read the old thread and ran into a comment by Northcountryboy:
"Not sure if this will be of any use to you or not!
on your desktop, if you hold down control, and hold down right click on your mouse, at the same time, you can then adjust your icon sizes, by using the scroll wheel on your mouse......
hope this helps"
I never knew of this trick, now I'm very happy that my desktop icon on Vista look the way I wanted thank to this trick! Does this trick work on any window? Also, if one doesn't have the scroll mouse, there's no other method to do it?
In addition to this, if you guys have anymore trick, please do list them here. This is great.
