    W7. I installed a new Geforce Graphic card. Now all icons on the screen are larger. Clicked on the three vertical dots. Zoom is on 100%. I cannot reduce size of Icons.

    Any advise please.

    Normally on Win 7 you can just right click on an empty area of the desktop screen, then chose View from the pop-out menu, change your icon size from there.
    That should affect all the icons on the desk.

    Right click blank space on desktop and choose Screen Resolution. What is it now set at? What did it used to be set at?

    Now set at 800 x 600.

    I did not know what previous setting was.

    But following advice from the posts I have set it to 1280 x 1024.

    Fine. Thank you.

    No. Once I installed the Card, I just started the PC and that's when the large icons appeared. But right clicking as advised it and setting at 1280 x 1024, its fine.

    The instruction leaflet was in Chinese. Its working fine and I still have not installed the driver. The Cards I removed are Nvidia.

    I just put a new RX460 in one of my computers and it Defaulted to 800X600 until I got the new drivers installed then it had the right resolution. I tried changing the resolution before I installed the drivers and my desktop picture shrank to about a 1/4 of it size, after the latest driver was installed it was back right again. I tried to get the drivers from XFX but it just linked me to AMD.

    Go into the Device Manager, then expand the Display Adapters heading.
    What is the exact name of the graphic device listed there?

    Double-click that graphic device entry.
    When its properties window appears, click the "Driver" tab.
    What is the exact driver version listed there?

    Just as I guessed.
    Your computer is using the Windows default VGA driver.
    You need to install the NVIDIA driver package for it that I linked you to in post #5.
