    Right click on the Desktop, select View and "Classic Icons" - I believe that
    should set them back to 32x32. Not sure if this only applies with Aero Glass
    turned off... but if the "Classic Icons" doesn't come up, select "Small
    Icons".

    I want to know why you can't change the icon style - in Windows Explorer you
    can change the icon style to list, thumbnail, icons, tiles, etc - but on the
    desktop you only have the one icon sytle...

    maybe I want my icons on the desktop to be tiles, or list icons, etc...

    And maybe I want my desktop icons to group along the top, or bottom, or
    right side instead of left, or around the edge so they don't occult the
    wallpaper, and there's no way to do that except manually and that's been
    getting my goat ever since Win95. Come on, Microsoft, it shouldn't be *that*
    difficult to allow users easy control over their desktops!

    So true Pierre - when you think about it, the desktop is just another
    directory on the computer like all the others, C:\Doents and
    Settings\Chris\Desktop, for example. I always why when I customize that
    directory in the Explorer window, why the changes didn't te on the
    desktop itself.

    And be careful with those goats and the occult Pierre...

    <lol>
    Actually the desktop isn't "just a directory" as far as Explorer (or
    whatever name the user shell has in Vista) is concerned: all accesses to it
    are filtered through a specific DLL. Bloated as Vista already is (when
    compared to XP), it shouldn't make a lot of difference to expand that DLL to
    handle additional customizations.
