Resize Your Desktop Icons

Windows lets you choose large, medium, or small desktop icons from its right click menu options. However you can fine-tune the size of your desktop icons with a quick shortcut that involves your mouse wheel.

The standard desktop icon sizes are available in the desktop’s context menu—right-click the desktop, point to view, and select “Large icons,” “Medium icons,” or “Small icons.”

You can also use your mouse to adjust and select extra size options.

To do this position your mouse cursor over the desktop

Hold down the Ctrl key on your keyboard, and scroll the mouse wheel up or down.

Stop scrolling and release the Ctrl key when you’ve found your preferred size.

This shortcut lets you select around different 28 sizes, from extra tiny to surprisingly huge.

These methods work in File Explorer or Windows Explorer, too. You can quickly resize file and folder icons by holding Ctrl and rotating your mouse’s scroll wheel.
