    Anyone know how to change them to make them smaller?

    Running 1024 x 768 and they look HUGE!

    Been into advanced settings and tried changing them in there, but made no difference.

    You think that they made them so big because many people are now running much higher resolution?

    The icon's are large by default (this is the new Vista standard), to get them back looking like normal:

    Right Click the desktop, select View->Classic Icons

    This will revert the icon's to XP's size.

    Have fun

    -Ken
