How can I reduce the size of KDE desktop icons?

I can not find an explaination within my SUSE Linux 10 literature on how to reduce the size of the KDE desktop icons.

So to show how dumb and desperate I am; I am posting this thread in Linux newbie on this website.

If nothing else, everyone should get a good laugh at my ignorance.

Relax, you don't get laughed at for being a newbie.
In my FC4 box, I would go to the KDE Control Center and look under Appearance & Themes or Look & Feel / Icons

Thank You Very Much, Homey!

The large icons had become so annoying that I was turning off my computer with the Firefox browser open so I did not have to look at those icons screaming at me.

Suse Linux 10 reminds me of when I worked for an electrical firm years ago and the developers always overcomplicated things.

If I live long enough, I may get the hang of Linux yet.
