How to put more icons on your pc desktop?

If you have too many icons on your computer desktop of Windows XP and cannot put more, the simple method to let you add more icons is that you can change the amount of space between icons. The following is how you can do it.

1. Right-click on the desktop, select Properties.

2. Click on the Appearance tab.

3. Click the Advanced button. In the "Item" drop-down, scroll down to Icon Spacing (Horizontal) and Icon Spacing (Vertical); changing the value in the "Size" field will move icons closer together (while increasing the number will move them farther apart).

4. Click OK.


1. To make your existing icons follow these rules, right-click on the desktop, select "Arrange Icons By" and then click Align to Grid, then go back to the same menu and click "Auto Arrange."

2. You can also create a folder on your desktop to hold some unused icons. In this way, you can save some desktop space.
