The icons on my desktop are very small, and I wish to change my resolution to 800x600. Specifically how would I do that. Thank you very much. Murrar

Just right-click anywhere on the desktop where there is no icon or other object...click on Properties. Select the Settings tab and adjust your screen resolution to whatever you want. Moving the slider to 800x600 will make items viewable on the desktop...larger and easier to see.

You can also use the setting on the appearance tab in properties to make the icons larger. On the page with the appearance tab, you can click on effects and select use large icons, and, you can click on advance and from the drop down list select icons and change the size there.

I like the 800x600 setting so things are larger on the screen but I also change the size of everything using the settings in properties/appearance.
