You can resize and rearrange desktop icons with this tiny utility, but restoring your original settings is more difficult than it needs to be. DesktopIconFun, which writes to the system tray, has a simple interface with options for changing the size of the icons on the desktop and Start menu and adjusting the alignment of your desktop options. To resize icons, select from either normal or small icon views or specify the number of pixels. To rearrange the desktop appearance, place all icons on the left, right, top, bottom, or in a circular arrangement. However, the icon changes, which we expected to be instantaneous, took longer than we would have liked. Additionally, you must uninstall the program and restart your machine to restore the default settings; the Restore All button in the program only allows you to restore settings in the Start menu. While not a necessity, anyone who wants to show desktop flair may want to check out this freeware.
