Win7 Pro

With XP I can customize to my hearts content.....

With Win7Pro I'd like to make the Icons smaller and closer together and I am not finding where to do so.

Any Ideas.

I downloaded the Mail client from MS and it isn't even as good as OE6. Any suggestions

Thanks
Roger

Hold down the Ctrl key while simultaneously scrolling back with your mouse wheel (makes them smaller).

As for the email, please create a new topic in the Web Browsing/Email and Other Internet Applications sub-forum. :huh:

Wow, it does work!

Do I feel stupid... I've been doing the exact same thing in Firefox all along, then minimizing it and looking at my desktop and thinking "I wish there was a way to make those icons smaller..."

And to think I've had the hubris to poke around in the registry in safe mode :huh:
