From the Desktop, right-click and go to Display properties, Appearance tab, and then Advanced. In the Item dropdown list, select Icon Spacing ??????, and make a selection other than the default of 43.

It only changes the desktop for some reason. Thanks though.

Tried it...

It only changes the size the quality, which I have adjusted, and still no go. The weird thing is it hasn't always been like this. It just started a few days ago before my first post. I restored back a few days but still nothing, so I'm lost. Is there anything in the registry perhaps?

But I fear I can't find that registry entry. However there are PAYWARE registry tweakers with more settings that may help.

Sorry but I don't know about a freebie.

I found a way to make the actual thumbnails smaller which helps a little, but I'll keep searching. Thanks for all your help!

Light bulbs you shouldn't buy

There are plenty of dimmable LED light bulbs, but make sure you don't buy the ones that flicker when you dial them down.
