    Set Default View on the Desktop

    Is there an easy way per user to reset the Desktop Icons to a normal size. I've recently blocked so they cannot change the settings back, but half the students have Extra large icons onthere desktop!

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics

    Should be under there, but won't apply till next login unless you restart dwm service

    Will have a play with registry keys later. It will be done as a login script hopefully to reset.
