Unhappy Re: How to Change Font Size & Icon Size in Windows 7

My Netbook Icons are filling the screen, so much I cant see the new ones. They are around an inch square and I have already tried the Control Panel route that was suggested. However the resolution IS at 100% and I only have the option left to INCREASE it ?
What can I do now please /

Re: How to Change Font Size & Icon Size in Windows 7

Are the icons on your desktop? Move whatever it is on there, I'm going to assume that, like most people, you store everything on your desktop. Anyway, move it into the "My documents" folder or make folders to put certain groups of files into, eg a games folder, a pictures folder. Then to reveal the extra icons, right click and choose arrange icons by-->time/date/size/type or whatever.

Right-click the desktop, point to View, and then click Large Icons, Medium Icons, or Classic Icons (classic icons are the smallest).

You can also use the scroll wheel on your mouse to change the size of your desktop icons.

On the desktop, press Ctrl while you scroll up or down.
