Changing Desktop Icon Spacing
in Windows XP adjustments can
be made to horizontal and vertical alignment spacing.
Here is a sample question
I received from someone using Windows XP:
"My Computer Icons
are too far apart. How do I make my desktop
icons line up closer together? Windows
Steps for spacing
desktop icons horizontal and vertical.
1. Right Click Desktop + Choose “Properties”
2. In the Properties Window click on the “Appearance
Tab” at the top.
3. In the Appearance Window click on the button called “Advanced”.
4. In the Advanced Appearance Window choose “Item:” from
the drop down list and choose “Icon Spacing (Horizontal)” and
you can choose desired Icon spacing. Likewise the same
steps can be used to change Vertical spacing.
Advanced Appearance showing "Item" and
"Icon Spacing" is selected.
