    I'm trying to change the size of my Recycle Bin and My Computer icons, but I can't figure out how to do it without changing the size of all the icons in explorer. I went through the display properties, and even tried it through regedit (HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Control Panel/Desktop/WindowMetrics), but I can't do it. Is there a way?

    Hmm... guess nobody knows? I was wondering if Resource Hacker would do this...

    Nope, when you change the icon size, its universal. Meaning you cannot just change desktop icons.
  4. The only thing I can think of that will kind of do what you want is to put yr wallpaper in photoshop and paste yr icons onto it. Then put invisible icons on your actuall desktop.


    Use DesktopX

    i dunno if this is ti but you can go on your desktop

    Right Click>Properties>Apperence(tab)>Advanced>Item scroll down to icon, should be a size there

    Thanks for the suggestions. I just had the recycle bin on my desktop, and I ended up removing it so I'm icon-free now. :)

    I think you can use WindowFX to change the size of just the desktop icons.
