Does anyone know how to separate the icons on my desktop and in my windows (such as control panel) so that the descriptions are not on top of each other and cutting each other off?

I upgraded my WindowsME to XP Professional on my laptop and my icons look like they are crowding each other on the desktop and several windows. Is there a setting I am missing? I have played around with all the resolutions and I can't seem to space them out.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.... :confused:

icons

Right click on your desktop, choose "Arrange icons by"and untick "Auto Arrange". You can now move your icons where you like. Do the same in control panel.

If you want to use the auto-arrange feature, you can change the horizontal and vertical spacing between icons by going to Start/Settings/Control Panel/ Display/ Appearance tab, click the "Advanced" button and in the "Item" field choose "Icon Spacing (Horizontal)" or "Icon Spacing (Vertical)" from the dropdown list. Change the spacing until your icons appear as you want. If the Font is rather large, you can change that, in there also, by choosing "Icon" (instead of "Icon Spacing") from the dropdown list. Hope that helps, Black_Pride.:)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
