    Icon Spacing in Windows 8


    There used to be an Icon Spacing somewhere in Personalize options in Windows 7, but i can't find in W8.

    It was Icon Spacing - Vertical and Horizontal.. Has MS removed it? :[

    The old Appearance dialog is no longer in Windows, so this has to be done manually in the registry.

    How do you set icon snap grid spacing?
