    Hello Willden,

    You could use OPTION FOUR or OPTION FIVE in the tutorial below to change the size of your desktop icons.

    For some obtuse reason neither of the above solutions works on my laptop.Completely different settings are offered when I perform the above actions.

    The method I gave you is from my Windows 10, and there is no difference among Windows 10 Home, Windows 10 Pro and Win 10 Enterprise version.

    All I can say is that when I right clicked on a empty space on the desktop It opened up a different variation of options to choose from.All's well that ends well and I can now choose what size I need the icons.
