How to make desktop icons smaller?

Somehow I managed to do a "stroke" on the trackpad that made the icons on my desktop very large. I can't figure out what I did or find a setting to change them back to small size.

Anyone know the stroke or where to find the setting? Thanks!

In Finder, press Command + J. You can adjust the icon size there.

or an easier way you can pinch in and out to zoom icons, in any folder, including the desktop, just like on an iphone
