    How to reduce desktop shortcuts?

    The Windows operating system has a lot of useful features that can greatly simplify its everyday use. But not all users know about them. For example, very few people are informed how to increase icons, shortcuts, icons, font, and other interface elements on the desktop. This feature will be very useful for those who like to keep all their documents and programs before their eyes, especially if the computer monitor is rather small.

    With a smaller size, more shortcuts and icons will fit on your desktop, which allows you to not worry about the availability of free space.

    There are several ways to resize various interface elements in Windows. The simplest are to change the monitor resolution and fast scaling with the scroll.

    How to reduce the size of the shortcut on the desktop?

    Zoom out via the context menu:

    • Right-click on an empty spot on the desktop;
