On newer computers with high resolution displays, the icons on the Desktop or in a Finder window may be so small that they are difficult to see for people with low vision.

To change the size of the icons on your Desktop:

  1. Right-click on an empty area of the Desktop and choose Show View Options.
    Contextual menu for Desktop includes Show view options.
  2. Use the Icon size slider at the top of the popup window to choose a different icon size.

  3. Use the Text size pulldown menu to choose a different size for the icon labels.

To change the size of the icons in a Finder window, use the slider in the bottom right corner of the window (this slider will only be available in Icon view).
