Is there a way to resize all your desktop icons at once? (Mint 16)
Thanks

open file manager
click the "edit" menu and then select "preferences"
set the "icon view defaults" larger or smaller than 100%
this will set all the icon sizes on your desktop at the same time.

I'm not sure why the File Manager's settings control the Desktop Icons, but Thanks for your answer!
It worked :D

As log as I remember that is how gnome works. The file manager controls the desktop. I think the desktop is treated just like a regular folder window, only it's the desktop. :D
