Hi Thanks a lot Bogo for reminding.
Icons are reduced in size now But the space between icons is still same (lots of blank space). Any thing to make that normal ?

Thanks

Thanks TituFama for your message,
I have reduced Horizintal and Vertical Icon Spacing to 25 ( previously it was set to 43 ) but still no effect. :( Icons are still too far away from each other.
Any idea ?

Thanks

Riz

icon spacing on the desktop is usually messed up after changing icon size... try to reboot your computer... or change your resolution to something and back again
