    Is there a way to change the gridsize for automatic placement of
    desktop icons? Perhaps somewhere in the registry? I'd like to cram
    more stuff on my desktop in an orderly way ;-)

    Hi Bram,

    Try adjusting the icon spacing. There are two controls, horizontal and
    vertical. Right click the desktop and select personalize. Open Windows Color
    and Appearance, then click the line to "open classic appearance
    properties....". Now click on Advanced, and look for the icon spacing
    controls in the item dropdown. Reducing the number will squeeze the icons
    closer together.

    Best of Luck,
