Did you have a way of achieving this already thought out?

I have tried a few different ways that I have found on the interwebs, and none seem to do exactly what is required. I am wondering if there are different ways of doing this between OS's, and I am not seeing the final result due to trying this on Windows Server 2012 (which is what my Dev VM runs on).

Yeah. I remember researching this. I cant remember the reg key and other details but I remember this one was not as straight forward as the other options.

Yeah, that is what I am coming up against as well. Some say to create a key called "Shell Icon Size" and set that as required, but this didn't work. Others say to use another key under something like HKCU:/Control Panel/1/Bag/Desktop.

I will keep doing something digging, see what I can come up with.
