    Windows 8.1 Icon's size


    Hello everyone,
    im not sure about whether this question has been answered or not but it seems that if I wanted to change all my icons in my computer to "large Icons" it doesn't appear to apply to all my other icons in different folders, how can I fix this? isn't there an option where you can turn all your icons to large small or detailed ? Thanks.

    Hey David,
    But this only sets the current folder to have large icons but lets say i went into the wallpapers folder and there are another bunch of folders in there, they will not have the Large icons options applied so i have to redo the process for that folder also. What i meant is how can i set large icons for all my files and folders without having to go through each folder one at a time
