    Yeah...i know...kind of late ;)

    My question is (hopefully an easy one):

    How do i make all the icons (desktop, within folders, etc...) the same size as they were in Leopard? And I'd like to do this once, across the board.

    Thank you!

    PS: i dislike the "new" big icons! I just want my perfectly sized Leopard-size icons back!

    While in a Finder window, go to View --> Show View Options. The first slider, icon size, should be brought to 48 x 48 I think... that would be Leopard size. You can make it as big or small as you wish. Then on the bottom click "Make Default."

    This may not alter the desktop icons, so do the same thing when your desktop is "selected."

    Ohh man! You're awesome! I was trying that from the desktop and it didn't have that make default button! Doh!! Desktop is technically a folder, right? ;)

    Thank you so much!
