    Hi everyone,
    I know the answer to my question is here somewhere but I have been scouring the forum for at least half an hour and cant find it.

    I have Snow Leopard, my fingers accidentally did the pinch/zoom thing on the track pad while in Finder and now all my desktop icons are ridiculously tiny. I've had this problem once before but can't remember how I fixed it. I know it's simple, but I just can't seem to remember how. Someone please help, I'm going mad trying to fix this problem :mad:

    Important to note that I don't know HOW I did it in the first place, so I can't just repeat the action to undo it. I'm not really keen on many of the special touch pad actions, just the basics.

    Right-click desktop, Show View Options, change your icon size as you wish. Mine are set for 48x48 and I don't remember ever changing them.
    And if you want to use the trackpad, two finger click it for a right-click.

    right click on the desktop and click on "show view options", from there you can change the icon size.
