Greetings,   

I hope this issue finds everyone doing well. I am fighting 
some bad allergies right now, but I suppose it's a small 
price to pay for the spring weather. Once everything starts 
blooming, my sinuses just aren't happy! Hopefully I will 
feel better this weekend so I can enjoy some time outside.

Enjoy,   
Mandi

          :::::  This Week's Computer Tip  :::::   

Here's a way to make your desktop icons bigger or smaller:

Windows XP

Right-click the desktop and choose "Properties." Select the 
"Appearance" tab then click the "Advanced" button.

Under "Item", pick "Icon" from the drop down list. Under 
"Size" use the arrow keys to make the icons bigger or small-
er (you could also type in a number). 

Click "Apply" to make changes. 

You'll also notice "Font" and "Size". This is where you can 
change these settings. If you make large fonts, you may need 
to use a smaller font to prevent overlapping.

If you don't like the way the icons are spaced you can 
always change that too. Under "Item" select "Icon Spacing 
(Horizontal)" or "Icon Spacing (Vertical). Choose a number 
slightly bigger than your icon size and it will adjust the 
space.

Windows 98/ME

Right-click the desktop and choose "Properties" Select the 
"Appearance" tab.

Under "Item", pick "Icon" from the drop down list. Under 
"Size" use the arrow keys to make the icons bigger or small-
er (you could also type in a number). 

Click "Apply" to make changes. 

You can also change the font and size settings. 

If you make large fonts, you may need to use a smaller font 
to prevent overlapping or you can change the spacing. Under 
"Item" select "Icon Spacing (Horizontal)" or "Icon Spacing 
(Vertical). Choose a number slightly bigger than your icon 
size and it will adjust the space.

If your spacing changes don't seem to take affect, right-
click the desktop and choose "Arrange icons".
