Desktop icons tiny after enabling 3d effects (compiz)


For some reason my desktop icons have decided to be very small and can't be changed (systemsettings/appearances/icons/advanced) It happened after I enabled and downloaded the files need for compiz. I have disabled compiz and now have no 3D desktop effects, but still cannot alter the desktop icon size. What have I done??

Seems you have changed your screen resolution. Try adjusting the screen resolution:

Checked that, still the same - and I should be able to alter the size even if that were the case -
