& NBSP for beginners Usually, the question of how to reduce the desktop icons set users who have suddenly increased by any other. Although, there are other options - in this instruction I tried to take into account all possible. All methods, with the exception of the latter, are equally related to Windows 10, Windows 8 (8.1) and Windows 7. If all that nothing belongs to your situation below, please tell us in the comments that you are with the icons, and I will try to help.

Attention

For Windows 10, I recommend separate instructions: how to enlarge and reduce the icons on the desktop, in the explorer and on the Windows 10 taskbar.

Apply button to folders

Reduce the icons after their size spontaneously increased (or vice versa) In Windows 10, 8.1 and Windows 7 there is a combination that allows you to arbitrarily change the dimensions of the shortcuts on the desktop. The peculiarity of this combination is that it can "push randomly" and not even understand what exactly happened and why the badges suddenly became big or small. и This combination is Holding a Ctrl key Rotation Mouse Mouse Up for increase

or down

for decreasing. Try (while the desktop must be active, click on the empty place on it with the left mouse button) - most often, the problem is in this.

How to Resize Windows 10 Desktop Size - Video

Install the correct screen resolution

  1. The second possible option when you may not arrange the size of the icons - incorrectly installed monitor screen resolution. In this case, not only icons, but all other elements of Windows usually have a reasonable look.
  2. It is just correct:
How to make icons less or more

Right-click on an empty place on the desktop and select "Screen Resolution". ATTENTION: In Windows 10, this is done differently: how to change the resolution of the Windows 10 screen.

Set the correct permission (usually, opposite it is written "recommended" - it is best to set it exactly, because it corresponds to the physical resolution of your monitor).

Note: If you have only a limited set of permissions for selection and all small (not matching monitor characteristics), then it seems that you need to install video card drivers.

At the same time, it may turn out that after setting the correct permission, everything became too small (for example, if you have a small screen with high resolution). To solve this problem, you can use the "Changing the size of text and other elements" item in the same dialog box where the resolution has changed (in Windows 8.1 and 8). In Windows 7, this item is called "make text and other elements greater than or less." And to increase the size of the icons on the screen, use the already mentioned Ctrl + mouse chase.

Another way to increase and reduce icons

  1. If you are using Windows 7 and at the same time you have a classic topic (this, by the way, helps slightly speed up a very weak computer), then you can separately set the dimensions of almost any item, including the icons on the desktop.
  2. To do this, use the following priority of actions:
  3. Right-click in an empty screen location and click "Screen Resolution".
  4. In the window that opens, select "Make Text and Other Elements more or less".
  5. On the left side of the menu, select "Change Color Scheme". Reduced icons with mouse and ctrl

In the window that appears, click Other

Configure the desired dimensions for the desired items. For example, select the "icon" item and set its size in pixels.
