Increase size of icons on the MATE desktop


Can anyone help me find out how to increase the size of the icons on the MATE desktop.
I can't find a setting for this anywhere.

My partner has poor eyesight and really misses the 1366 laptop screen resolutions.
Her new laptop is a 1920x1080 and she's struggling with the scaling across the entire OS.

Many thanks.

Hi @wayne_tbt,

Take a look at Caja's preferences. The Icon View Default Zoom can be set up to 400% in 20.04.

This will affect all icons which doesn't sound like a problem for your partner. I see no way to only set desktop icons.


If you right click each icon on your desktop, it will let you resize the icon.


Thank you for your responses, I'll have a play with these options.
