How to increase folder icon and thumbnail size


In most Linux systems, increasing the folder icon size and picture thumbnail size is simply a matter of Ctrl + in the File Manager. I’m trying to help my friend, a relative computer noob, do the same in Endless but he says that doesn’t work. (We’re communicating via email.) Can someone tell me what the shortcut is to do that?

Thanks in advance.

Hi, Billy!

In Endless OS that same command (Ctrl +) increases the icon size when browsing documents, also you can tell your friend to press the Ctrl key and scroll up and down with the mouse scrolling wheel to modify the size of the icons.

Please let us know if this worked for him.

The second option worked for him. He still insists that the Ctrl + doesn’t work, but the Ctrl and mouse scroll wheel method did the trick. Thank you very much for your help.

Thanks for the update, Bill!

Have an excellent day.
