    I couldn't find anything here so I am posting.

    How do I customize the spacing "vertical" in icons on the desktop?

    Do you remember the tweak I gave you for XP? It *should* be the same for Vista.

    Oh 9, yea sorry. It took me abit to figure that out.

    There are alot of small simple stuff I had to relearn in Vista, kinda fun though.
