Okay Gents, looking for some help please Laughing

Just upgraded Toshiba M70 Laptop to Vista Ulitimate, generaly went ok apart from a couple of issue, VPN client dosn't work (won't be able to do any work when I'm down in Wellington for the Sevens Now ..shame) Symantec Corp dosn't work need ver 10.2 have 10.1 should have guessed that one.

I did the upgrade path , did notice it was quite slow both on install but it appeared to work fine, had 512 of RAM so will be ording more this morning 

but the one thing I would like help on is how the heck do I change the size of the default ICON's on the desktop.....way to large and really annoying, it's the little things that just bug you isn't it Cool 

Yes I am a employee of WxC (My Profile) ... but I do have my own opinions as well Wink

If you have a mouse with a scroll wheel, click on the desktop and you should be able to press CTRL and scroll up and down to adjust the icon sizes.

The new Wireless Desktop keyboard sets (6000 and 7000) come with a zoom key that zooms in and out in many applications.

Right clicking the desktop > View > Select Large Icons, Medium Icons or Classic Icons also works.
