    Okay, at one point I resized all of my desktop icons so that they were ballooned out of all proportion - the Macintosh HD icon, for example, is ridiculously large.

    For the life of me I can't figure out how I did this?

    I've checked in System Preferences about twenty times now, and I can't find anything that will allow me to resize the icons. I can resize the dock icons, but not the desktop icons?

    Click, the desktop, so that 'Finder' is shown next to the Apple menu.

    Click View -> Show View Options.

    In your Finder, look under View in the Menu Bar and select 'View Options' – there's a slider in there that'll let you resize your icons to something a little less daft.
