I just upgraded to Ubuntu 18.04 from 16.04, after upgrading the icon size on desktop are very large. I am unable to find my option to decrease the size in preferences. How do I decrease it?
- Open Files (aka Nautilus)
- Grid view: Change your icon view from “list” to “grid” first by clicking the button next to the hamburger menu.
- Zoom out: Click on the hamburger menu (three-horizontal-lined button at top-right) and decrease the icon size by clicking the “zoom out” button (or Ctrl+-).
(Open Files Windows and decrease the icon size by clicking “zoom out” button)
(This should also reduce the size of the icons in your desktop.)
