    Change my desktop icons to 32 bits view in registry?


    i'd like to change my desktop icons to 32bits view without having to install the laptop drivers 100mb or more
    video drivers. I prefer letting windows8 manage the display, without installing garbage video tools.. & adding
    more garbage to my vm.

    could you offer me a way to modify it in the registry ?

    this can be achieved hitting ctrl button+mouse wheel on the desktop, "for those who have a mouse wheel....... ."
    i'm on a laptop & don't have an external mouse at disposition. but that's the solution.
