    Is there some way to turn off the resizing of Icons on the desktop? I am getting tired of accidentally resizing my icons and moving the icons from where I am used to seeing them. :mad:

    Are they actually changing size as from HUGE to small?

    Finder -> View -> Show View Options
    or
    command + J

    Hmmm. There's a way to turn ON resizing of Desktop icons? Mine are always the same size.

    Yeah that is what it is adjusting. I want to turn off this pinch trackpad feature.

    Instead of making a duplicate thread about the same thing...

    ...I brought back this not-so-old one about the same thing.

    Every now and then, I drag an image from Safari to my desktop, or make a new folder, or something of the like, and my desktop icons pop down to 28x28 pixels. I keep mine at 60x60 all the time, so it's very irritating.

    Any way to stop this? I know I'm not doing any weird pinch feature, because sometimes, all it takes is when I let go of the trackpad after dragging an image out of Safari.

    Any ideas?
