Wish the desktop icons in Windows 10 were bigger so you could stop squinting at them or they'd be easier to tap on a touchscreen laptop? Or do you wish they were smaller so the shortcuts didn't take up as much space on your screen? Windows 10 luckily makes it very easy to change the desktop icon size.
