How do you resize desktop icons in Windows 8?

The icons on my desktop changed to a smaller size. I do not know what cause them to change size. How do I change their size back to what it was?

I have been unable to find any directions on sizing desktop icons for Windows 8.

hmm, I hold down the Crtl key and use the mouse wheel to resize desktop icons.

Hi

 

The Desktop in Windows 8 works the same way it did in previous versions.

 

Right click an empty space on the Desktop.

Select the View option.

You shouild see 3 options for changing to Small, Medium, or Large Icons.
