Tip: Icon sizes in Windows 10 File Explorer
12

I was disappointed to find that there wasn't any obvious way to adjust the size of icons in Windows 10's File Explorer to any size other than "Small", "Medium", "Large" or "Extra Large".   I find "Large" to be too small and "Extra Large" to be too big.

Windows 7 had a slider that let you vary the icon sizes continuously, but that feature is lacking in Windows 10.

Eventually I got annoyed enough with this that I went looking for a solution on the net, and I found a post that provided the answer - with File Explorer showing one of the icon views:

hold the Ctrl key down and scroll the mouse wheel - this changes the icon sizes in much smaller steps than the options in the view menu.
