Right click the desktop , properties , appearance , effects and untick use large icons.
If it is not that report back, it may be something else .... have to wait till after the football though.

...... and if that box is already unticked then as above but when you get to appearance click on advanced, in the drop down box under 'item' choose icon and reduce the size.

Or just click on your desktop and hold Ctrl while scrolling your mouse wheel....It should set them to whatever size you want.....Hopefully it works in XP as well, been a few years since I used that..

Many thanks guys,

I changed it via the icon bit in settings to the lowest setting which seems to be 16 so many thanks.
