Icon Size Registry Tweak

Q: Icon Size Registry Tweak

To change the size of the on icons on the desktop, you can use this tweak to make them larger, The default setting is 32

If you change this to 36, your icons will be slightly larger, the higher the number, the larger the icons will appear.

First you want to go to Start > Run, and type Regedit. navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER > Control panel > Desktop > WindowsMetrics. Click on the WindowsMetrics key and choose File > Export from Regedit's menu. Save the .reg file as windowMetricsoriiginal.reg. In case you don't like the changes, you can double-click on this file to restore the settings to their default value.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello everyone. I need to find where the Desktop icon size is stored in the registry. I already looked into this:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics - Shell Icon Size
and
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\1\Desktop - IconSize

But neither of these seem to change anything. Even if I change the icon size by using right click or the mouse scroll wheel, these values don't change at all. So where is this data really stored? Thanks in advance.

By default Windows 7 has desktop icon view set to Medium. I want to change the default user NTuser.dat hive as part of SCCM build so that each new user has small size by default, but can change if they wish (hence can't do it as a GPO)
Does anyone know the registry key(s) to change?

A:Registry key to change desktop icon size

Hi,
This view size is controlled by HKU specific user registry. Thus it can't be mapping to another user account.
If you insist, there is a complex workaround(However I wouldn't like to recommend you use this method):
Copy the following registry value to place another user's registry.
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\BagMRU
Note: It can't be imported, just copy its value.

I am trying to find the registry key that will change the desktop icon size to small.

This is mainly for new users, or for the default user. I have workstations that have several people sharing them and need this for everyone.

I have looked in these locations:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Shell\Bags\1\Desktop\IconSize
And
HKey_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics\Shell Icon Size

I played with both these settings for myself, and the desktop icons do not change.

If I reboot, the first key value goes back to 32, and the second key stays at 96.
But my icons never change in size.

I am looking for any way to do this in the registry.

I could try copying the ntuser.dat but fear I will still have issues with paths, and other defaults that will cause the same problem I had originally.

A:Registry Tweak Question

I dunno - but the context menu is sensitive to the "context" in which you use it (what you get depends on what you right click on).

I'd suggest backing up your registry and finding out how to restore it if you can't boot into Windows (a hard, but not impossible task). Once that's done, you can hose the registry to your heart's content - and still be able to resume using Windows (as long as the backup is fairly current).

Then just experiment with the different keys until you find a solution.

A:Did I Tweak The Registry Properly? Recovery Console

Just my two cents as I'm not a whiz at registry editing, but...Hexadecimal is hex code that the computer reads and decimal is plain numbers that you read. If you change the decimal and close the box you will notice the hex code next to it has changed. Be sure to backup the registry before saving any changes, especially keys regarding part of the Windows installation. Useful but risky.Slightly off topic but if you're not sure about editing the registry what purpose is changing the recovery console into a mini OS going to serve you?

Windows 7 registry scripts don't seem to work sometimes. That's why I always recommend you save the file in Notepad and save the encoding format as ANSI. That should eliminate the error message the error message, "Windows Registry Editor cannot import binary files"

I will try to provide an undo file with each script that I post however, a few will not remove the entry completely although it will not harm the computer in any way. I will also try to provide side effects that can happen when applying the tweaks.
Since most people are using Aero, there is no to change some options relating to Windows Text,colors, fonts, scrollbar width, etc

The most important one is the use of transparent icons. If you notice on your screen where an icon is on a dark or white background it is very difficult to read what the icon is.

This first registry hack eliminates that problem.

It can be fully tested by right-clicking on the desktop, choose personalize > Desktop background > Windows Desktop Backgrounds, choose select all shuffle every 10 seconds. You'll now notice a dark shadow if the icon is located on a white area of the background, making it very easy to read.

Copy and paste the following into Notepad, choose Save As... Make sure to select All Files and ANSI encoding and name it transparenticons.reg. You need to manually add the .reg to the end of the files.Name the undo file transparenticonsundo.reg.

Did you backup your registry before modifying it? Where do you get this information about tweaking the registry setting for ACHI? Also only switching from RAID to ACHI in Bios should be the only thing you need to do and modifying the registry settings would not be needed.

Also does your hard drive support ACHI is it a SATA driver or IDE PATA drive?

A:Any way to change type size but NOT icon size?

Here's my whole list of font size change settings, one of which might provide the answer for you. You've probably tried some of them, but see if there's something here that might change the font size on those icons, without changing the size of the icons themselves:

1. This is the one of the main setting tools for setting various locations of Windows font sizes. Right-click on the Desktop and go to Personalize, Window Color and Appearance. Click on Advanced, and in the drop-down menu, select the item that controls the location where you wish to change the font size. (Note: the last one, Window, does not have an option to control font size.)

2. DPI - Right click on Desktop, Personalize, On Personalization Page, go to left column to: Adjust Font size ? DPI, DPI Scaling: Click on Large scale (120 DPI), and click Apply.

3. Screen Resolution: Right-click on the Desktop, choose Screen Resolution, click on the down-arrow at the end of the Resolution box, and pick the desired resolution. Check OK.

4. Display: Right-click on the Desktop, select Personalize, then Display. From the 3 settings: Small, Medium, Large, if screen defaults to Medium (125% size for font and images) and that?s too large, use Small for 100% size (aka ?normal?)

A:Registry Size

Must be a Win2K thing, becuase I have no such option referred to by Symantec here:

But check your Help and Support index:

Windows NT4/2000 registry warning message during installation

Problem:
When installing Norton Ghost 2003 you get the following message: "Your maximum registry size is too small. To ensure that Windows runs properly, increase your maximum registry size. For more information see Help." Followed by the error: "1603: General Windows Installer engine error. Increase DiskSpace
requirement in Setup.ini and try again."
Cause:
This is a bug in the Microsoft installer engine.
Solution:
To increase the size of the registry, bring Windows Help and type "registry size limit" into the keyword search textbox and then follow the instructions. An additional 5MB of registry is sufficient to install Ghost 2003.Click to expand...

After adding an external hard drive to my computer, I've recently noted the new icon size in my system task bar as well as in my internet explorer favorites list...

The size is larger than I want them to be and have not found a way to revert them back to their original/smaller size. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

Greetings, I resentl had to reinstall my Operating system, all the periferals, everything. It appears that every thing is working right except that I can not get the Icons to reduce to the small size. I have reset it over and over, restarted it numerous times. It has worked normally before but I have had, in the past, this same problem. This time I cannot get it to reduce size. I will appreciate any help you can give. Thanks very much. James

I am trying to make the folders on my desktop small without making the corresponding text under the folders real small. The monitor resolution is now at 1280 x 720. I would like to keep it that way unless i should change it?

If i go to display and change the text size higher it also makes the folders larger and i want the folders to be small but keep the text size.

Can you help me out?
thank you

Click on the desktop, hold down the control key, with the mouse scroll wheel set the icon size to whatever you want. This also works with Vista.

Found This Guide over in the forums at Rage 3d. This guide is to help users who own a Ati Radeon and use the Rage 3d Tweaking Tool.
*This Guide is not for the regular Ati control panel, for that I would suggest Techspots Thomas Mcguire's Radeon 9x00's Tweak Guide as it is the best around the net, along with his other tweak guides :grinthumb
