How do I resize the desktop icons in Windows 7? My 4 year old daughter decided to make them all REALLY big.

You can also hold Ctrl, while you wheel the mouse wheel.

Which is probably how your 4 year old did it :)

Right Click on Desktop -> View -> Medium Icons

(Unfortunately it doesn't put them back to the position they used to be, as I just found out).
