    I got a new monitor and somehow changed the size of the text below the icons on the desktop. I have WindowsXP.
    I used to have small icons and large text.

    If I right click the desktop, then go to properties, then to Appearance, I have a choice of color scheme. I like "maple", which gives me normal size font, both for the text below the icons and on the task bar.

    I could live with "pumpkin", which has large text, which returns my large text under the icons, but which also gives me large text on the task bar - which I do not want.

    How can I keep "maple", yet have large text under the icons?

    Thanks...

    Rose-Marie, it's a piece of cake to change the size of the icon text. Do as you did before ( right-click the desktop, then click properties, then click the Appearance tab). Go one step further and click the Advanced button. In the Item window, click the Icon setting. Now you can choose the font and the text size that you desire. Once you've made your choices, click OK and you're done. I hope this helps. Cheers.
