    Hi,

    I just logged onto my computer and all my icons are about 3x as wide as they should be:

    Never seen this before and a Google search showed up with nothing. Anyone have any ideas?

    Things I've tried:

    • Rebooting
    • Changing to a single monitor setup (I use three)
    • All combinations of icon sizes, align to grid, auto-arrange etc.
    • Deleting old icons and creating new ones (the new ones are also wide)
    Thanks in advance!

    Fixed it:

    PersonaliseWindow Color → Advanced appearance settings

    Select Icon Spacing (Horizontal) and set back to 50 or so.
