    Just bought new computer and want to tweak current Desktop theme esp the fonts. Want to change the icon size, the font size for the program name under the icon icon spacing like we did under vista xp etc.
    I can't just find the settings for this any more.
    Thanks
    JK

    Right Click desktop and choose personalize. On left of window choose Change desktop icons.


    Using ‘Color And Appearance’ Method
    Right click on an empty spot on your desktop and choose Personalize, now choose the first item on the list Windows Color and Appearance, and then click the last link Open classic appearance properties for more color options.



    You will get the Windows XP type dialog. Click on Advanced, Under Item choose Icon, Set the size to your liking. Range from 16-72, hit OK and again hit OK on the second dialog.



    Is that what you meant?

    Try going to Personalization and then Window Color and then Advanced appearance settings...

    There is also a general icon size setting (small medium large) under View in the desktop context menu.
