    I've been trying to find a way to change the default icon size in Windows 7. My machine defaults to 'small' icon size, but I prefer the 'large' one, in just about every case. Instead of needing to manually change the size for each individual folder, is there a way I can set 'large' to be the default for all folders? I couldn't find anything in the control panel and haven't been able to find a post about setting a default size in the other forum posts yet.

    Open a folder and change the settings to how you want them. Then Click Organize (top left on the screen), choose folder and search options. Click the View tab, then click "Apply to folders".
