Smile Small icons for Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop

Hi there LQ peeps,
Anybody knows how to make my icon a bit smaller? Default icons seems to be too big for me. Please share. Thanks.

One option (for all icons) is to open Nautilus, there from the Edit menu pick up Preferences, and from the Icon view defaults change the Default zoom level to something smaller than 100% (or whatever there's currently selected).

Hope it helps
