    resize desktop icons without mouse wheel

    Normally, I would just hold down ctrl, and scroll the mouse wheel up or down to increase or decrease the icon size on the desktop. Unfortunately, the mousepad of my laptop doesnt work to full functionality, and the scroll part of it doesnt seem to work in windows 7.

    Is there another way to shrink the desktop icon size?
