    Extra large icons too small


    I'm running Windows 10 64 bit Home edition on a laptop.
    When I select "extra large icons" in WindowsExplorer the spacing increases but the thumbnail size stays the same as for"large icons".
    I have tried all the suggested fixes from the net, but nonehas worked.
    These included the obvious mouse wheel fix - this justreduces size,
    registry tweak - did nothing,
    A fix involving the group policy editor (once I'd made itwork) to "turn off task bar icons"
    but that option wasn't there.
    One suggestion to use the Faststone Image Viewer is anoption but it's an unwieldy overkill.
    Can any one please help


    :)

  2. Printer / Device panel problem in Windows 10

    Seems to be an icon problem, when switching the view to small icons they appear, but not the large and extra large.

  3. Picture icons is to small on Windows 10 computer

    Old title: Picture icons is to small

    Hi

    I have Windows 10 on a Dell XPS 13 with a high resolution of 3200 * 1800.

    When I manage my Pictures the icon size of the Pictures is way to small.

    The "Extra lagre icons" setting displays the icons in the same size as "Large icons".

    Is there some way to fix the "extra large icons" setting to work?

    Thanks,

    Marius

    Hi dalchina

    Thanks for the response.
    It seems that there is an absolute limit on icon size of 250 pixels and
    no matter what you do, this and hence "Extra Large Icons", cannot be increased.
    It seems a crazy shortcoming and about time MS did something about it.
    What's also strange is that on my desktop which runs Windows 10 pro, there's no problem -
    "Extra Large Icons" are large enough to be useful.

    Just for interest can you advise your laptop's screen resolution? (Screen size and DPI)

    Hi dalchina,

    I have the same issue and guess it's the resolution as you suggested. I have a Dell xps 13, resolution 3200*1800 or 4K.

    You would think, I know silly me, that Microsoft would do there research and figure out that the 4K resolution is in the market. Maybe once they upgrade the surface pro to 4k resolution they will fix win 10.

    Cheers!
