Apple has always been characterized by offering a large number of customization options when configuring our equipment if we have a vision problem. Within the customization options, macOS allows us to expand or decrease the size of the icons that are displayed on the desktop.
We can serve to place more items on the desktop and make space there by reducing the size of the icons. Or we can simply expand the icon size to better see both the name and part of its content. This process is very simple and here we show you how we can do it.
How to change the size of the icons
Both to expand and to decrease the size of the icons on our desktop, we must place ourselves in any part of it. And then click on the right mouse button. Or else, press with two fingers on the trackpad.
Next, click on Show display options. In the menu shown below, we see that the size of the default icon is 64 × 64 points. Here comes the part to enlarge or reduce the size of the icons. We just have to slide the bar to the left, if we want to make them smaller. Or slide it to the right, if we want to make them bigger.
The next option allows us to establish the space of the files in the grid of the desktop. In this way we can expand or reduce the spacing between the files. It also allows us to expand the text size of the files on our desktop. As well as changing the position of the file label.
In addition, it also allows us to show a preview of the files in miniature, along with the details of the file. It’s ideal for when we have directories or many images on the desktop of our Mac. Once we have made all the changes we want, we close the window. Each time we make a change, it will be displayed immediately on the desktop.
