Desktop icons suddenly 3x as wide

#1
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.
