Question about Gnome
Does anyone know how to reduce the size of desktop icons in Gnome on RedHat 7.3?

I want to be able to fit more things on the desktop. Sometimes when I open a window, it is too big and no matter how much I expand it, the window wont fit on the desktop.

Are you running "gmc" (Gnome Midnight Commander) or "nautilus"?

Right. Open up a nautilus window.
Select in the menu:
Edit -> Preferences -> Views -> Icon view defaults -> Default zoom level

You could always right click on the icon, select "Stretch Icon", then shrink it ...

Of course, if you have alot of icons, that could get old real quick. :)
