How to make the Desktop Icons smaller than the current size
  

I am run my system with windows 7 and the 1680 x 1050 screen resolution. I am really fed up with the icon size which appear to be large they are set at the "100%" setting below "Display" settings and can hardly fit even ten icons vertically and 20 horizontally. I am feeling this because my friend is using windows xp with a 1024 x 768 resolution and he is able to get at lest twenty vertically and fifty horizontally icons. So I am hoping Microsoft bring edition that will allow desktop icons even smaller anyone have any kind of details please let me know the same.

Yes you can perform the change in icon size for that you need to right click on the desktop and need to be away from the icons and choose “Personalization”. There you need to click on Windows Color and after that tick the drop down menu below the “Item” title. There you can choose the objects you want or like to modify and Icon size is amongst the items that you can alter. Other than the above you can even tried the "advanced" feature that conveys the classic control panels to customize all components of your system desktop, windows and buttons. I think both the solution provided should work for you to get the required icon size.
