    Change appearance of desktop files and folders


    Hi community,


    I recently resented my PC and now the desktop icons appear more narrow then before.

    The problem is not the size. I attached the appearance of how it is at the moment (narrow) and how it was used to be (desired).

    Please let me know how this can be changed as I did not find any answers online.


    Thanks


    Narrow:

    Hi Victor,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    Are you facing this issue with the Windows 10 PC?

    I suggest you to try the following methods to personalize your desktop to the desired requirements:

    Method 1:

    Check the Icon spacing
    to rearrange the Desktop icons.

    Method 2:

    Check the Resize Desktop icon
    option to change the size of Desktop icons.

    Method 3:

    Check the Change screen resolution
    to desired settings.



    Hope it helps.



    Thanks,

    Thank you for the reply Suman_B.

    The term I was looking for was "Icon spacing". I could not find the solution by the link provided as Windows 10 did not show me the options that the link suggested. I resolved my problem the following:

    1. Enter the registry Windows+R and type regedit

    2. Follow the path: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics

    3. Find IconSpacing and set it to -1710

    4. You might also change IconVerticalSpacing if desired(in my case
    -1125)

    5. Reboot Windows to apply the changes

    According to some tutorials, the IconSpacing and the
    IconVerticalSpacing
    can be any value between -480 (minimum spacing) and -2730.

    Hope this helps others in need!

    All the best,

    Victor
