    Command-J? Why is that "particularly easy"? There are dozens of keys on my keyboard. How should I know that's the magical combination to change the icon sizes? If I was a Windows user, I'd right-click on the desktop. That doesn't work. Next, I'd try Finder --> Preferences. Nope. System Prefs --> Appearance? Nope. Desktop and Screen Saver? Nope.

    Back to Finder. Oh! There's a View Menu. Ah! "Show View Options!"

    Why not put it under preferences? Or allow me to right-click on the desktop to do it?

    Yes, but the thing is... that's precisely where the view options are in Windows. Explorer:View:View Options

    I thought that on this particular issue Mac OSX and Windows are on the exact same difficulty?

    Article has been updated - she's now in (almost) full retreat:

    So, she simply expected it to be somewhere and when it wasn't she stopped looking.

    Really? To change icon sizes on the desktop? Boy. That's stupid.

    Is that what Macs are shooting for? To be not quite as stupid as Windows?

    No one has explained why View Options isn't in Preferences.

    Because the options are related to the current view, not the Finder in general.
