How to Fix Desktop Icon Spacing Issue on Windows 11

Some users reported that after updating their system, the spacing between their desktop icons became huge. Some users also reported that the size of their desktop icons became large. If your Windows 11/10 desktop icon spacing has suddenly changed and messed up, the following methods will help you restore it to its original state.

Restore default icon spacing using the Registry Editor

To do so, open regedit and navigate to the following registry key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics

You need to check the values of IconSpacing and IconVerticalSpacing.

The default value for both is -1125 on my PC – although I have seen it to be -1128 on some PCs.

Restore the default values and restart your computer.
