    Reduce the size of desktop icons in Vista

    By default, the system offers a size of icons that in my opinion, too cumbersome.

    Now you can cut the size as per your liking in an easy way:
    1. Click with the mouse on a blank desktop
    2. Press and hold down the CTRL key, and simultaneously turn the mouse wheel.

    That trick did not work for me. Are you sure you posted it correctly?

    I guess you must be trying it Windows XP. Otherwise it works perfectly in Vista. As I have already mentioned in the title, this is only for Windows Vista.
