    Right click on the desktop, in the options somewhere there you should be able to edit the size of them.

    right click on the screen, then click on view, then classic

    change the resolution.

    Change the desktop resolution.........right click on the desktop and personalize.

    you need to right click then view then classic icons

    Or ctrl and click then scroll big or small with a mouse!

    Go onto the desktop - right click - select properties - appearance - then change font size to normal

    if that dont work - right click - properties - settings then go down and change thr res to 1024 by 768

    Nowt wrong with Vista, I do allsorts on mine from mundane stuff to tinkering with graphic manipulation programs and I prefer it to Xp. Don't like the OS that you have limited programs for
