Graphics, User Interfaces Last week, Culf of Mac published an article showing off some of Snow Leopard's beautiful 512x512 icons, revealing some interesting tidbits about them you could only see when the icons are fully maximised. In this article, I compare some of Snow Leopard's icons to those of Windows 7, and you'll see while both operating systems have beautiful icons, there are some key differences between the styles of these icons. Note that this article contains some large images, so if you're on dial-up, you've been warned.

How do I...

...change the size of the icons on the Desktop or in a particular Window again (on Windows 7)? I'd like to have my VM set up to be 32 x 32 as my Mac is, but for my wife who has some vision impairment 48 x 48 works well because it's large enough for her to make them out but not huge so that two icons take up the whole screen.

I'm sure it must just be a simple setting I've missed?

Control Panel (Classic) » Display » Appearance » Effects » Use Large Icons

That will use 48x48 icons.
