How can I change Windows Explorer's icon sizes by using the mouse?

A. Vista introduces the ability to hold down the Ctrl key and use the mouse scroll wheel to resize icons through all the various options, as the figureshows. Alternatively, you can use Explorer's View menu to change the icon sizes and level of detail.

You can even use the mouse method for the icons that form the main desktop, just make sure the desktop is active.
