In Windows 7 the icon spacing adjustment was in the Appearance/Color menu. In Windows 8 I haven't been to find it. I have icons on a desktop just like Windows 7 and I want to reduce the vertical icon spacing. Does anyone know how to do this?

Thanks.

hi I looked everywhere in the setup and even searched the support help ,and found nothing ,I google and found a registry change for changing the space ,I change mine to the suggested -800 and it made them overlap so I changed to -900

my screen resolution is 1600.x1200

site I found ,remember that playing with registry edits can be dangerous if you are not careful
