Disabling Icon Scaling in Windows

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I have long wondered if there is some way to prevent icons from automatically scaling in Windows XP. 

For example, when I am in Windows Explorer in Tiles view (which displays 48x48 pixel icons), and the largest available icon is 32x32 pixels, the 32x32 icon will scale up to 48x48.  This is highly undesirable, since it creates jagged edges, and the result is usually horrific!  The smaller icon will always scale up to the bigger size; the only exception to this behaviour is when in Thumbnail view.  Then the size of the icon is respected, seemingly for the 48x48-pixel icons, i.e., it will make everything scale up to 48x48 instead of the full 96x96 size of the thumbnail.

 

I would think there would be some setting somewhere to change that would fix this strange behaviour, so if anyone has heard of it, I would be ever so greatful to hear of it!

 

Thanks,

        Thomas
