    mate, you rather use context menu and become iconless set up.. i made several customization on windows.

    you can try this method via registry.

    Step 1. Press Windows+R simultaneously, and then a new window is opened. Type "regedit" in the blank, and click the button of OK.



    Step 2. Navigate to the following location: HKEY_CURRENT_USER> Control Panel> Desktop> WindowMetrics


    To change desktop icon horizontal spacing, double click IconSpacing to modify the value. You can choose any value from -480 to -2730 (-480 represents the minimum and -2780 represents the maximum). Then tap OK.




    To change desktop icon vertical spacing, double click IconVerticalSpacing. You can set any value between -480 to -2730 the same way. Tap OK to save changes.


    Step 3. Log off or restart the computer, the changes would be made to the icons on the desktop.







    Thanks
    Thanks for the reply, if changing the value for vertical spacing i imagine this will result in the icons looking stretched wiredly, horizontal scaling would also have to be adjusted i'd say. Anyways can try it and backup regkey first.

    The icon size is ok, thats not the issue, the issue is at the top there is no blank area and at the bottom if a relatively large dumb looking blank area. If i would have programmed this to have he same amount of blank space on the bottom and top so both sides look the same. Isn't that possible with registry? Adujsting the values for upper and lower taskbar spaceing?

    There you go @Try3 and @Ghot screenshot added.

    Is there a registry tweak to fix the blank area? Or a professional program?
    Regarding changing the icon size, not to be offensive or anything but that sounds a bit lame... because you don't need a program to do that. Hold down CNTRL and use mousewheel will change the icon size (but not affect the blank area).

    I never heared about Winareatweaker but the UI looks pretty outdated.



    Winaero Tweaker is "just" a collection of registry tweaks, made easy.
    Furthermore, there's a "link" for every tweak, that will show you how to do it manually, if you want.

    Don't be fooled by the appearance of Winaero... it's an awesome program.

    And... it has tweaks for just about everything you can think of...

    Ghot, the guy doesn't like my idea.

    ...let's see if you can convince him otherwise. (be careful though, your second picture which is really vertically long might be a little confusing...)
    I'll give you a +1 point (in my mind) for you, if the dude decides to use Winaero Tweaker

    Not exactly what you asked for but you can try CairoShell. Just don't set it to start with windows. It takes some getting used to.
