Smaller Icons

With smaller icons makes your wallpaper looks wider.

Follow these easy steps:
  1. Go to Registry Editor.
  2. Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USERS\Desktop\WindowMetrics.
  3. Find Shell Icon Size at right window.
  4. Double Click it and type a smaller value than its default value.
  5. The difference will shown a couple of seconds.
  6. If you want to increase color quality of icons, double click Shell Icon BPP and fill one of the numbers: 12, 24, 32. If your computer icon's max resolution is 24, you can't change the value into 32.
