Below is what the small, medium, and large icons look like.
Finer Control of Size
You can also change the size of desktop icons by clicking the Ctrl key on your keyboard and while holding down the Ctrl key roll the ball on your mouse (the middle button that scrolls web pages up or down when rolled) up or down.
