How Do I Change The Icon Size On My Desktop In Mac OS X?


I'm running out of room on my desktop, is there a way to make all of the icons smaller?

You can adjust the size of desktop icons in Mac OS X from the Finder by going to View->Show View Options (Command-J). You can increase/decrease the icon size as well as the text size for each icon.
