    ControlPanel Icon size


    Does any one know how to change the size of the icons in ControlPanel? You only have 2 choices. Large icons and small icons. The small icons are too small and I can hardly see them.The large icons are so big that they over fill the page. Holding Ctrl and moving the scroll whell doesn't work in ControlPanel like it does on the Desktop. Medium icons are grayed out under view.

    I guess from no replies, that there's no way to do it.
