    Hello Win10Newb, :)

    Turning off selecting items with check boxes will return the icons to normal size.

    It should look like this with check boxes turned off. Is this what you're seeing now?

    Odd. That's not how it looks on any of my systems (15063.540). Note that there is no icon-width 'whitespace' to the left of the disk icon and that the tick-box is superimposed top left on the icon, not separately off to the left as in the OPs screenshot. Is this a new 'feature' of build 16278 then?
