    Got a new MBP 13". Just the one problem. Every now and again, always when I am touching the mousepad, the icon sizes on the desktop change. I then have to go into Show View Options and set it back again to what I want.

    I've looked for keyboard shortcuts in case my fingers are doing something I'm not meaning to, but can't find any help.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    I think you are pinching and zooming on the desktop. I used to do that on accident, but I shut it off in the settings. I forget exactly where it is though, maybe someone can chime in and let you know more specifically how to turn that off.

    I've now switched pinch and zoom off in System Preferences / Trackpad, hope that'll do the job.

    Thanks for that.
