    Re: Icon Spacing

    Right-click on the desktop (not the sidebar), then select Personalization.
    Then select the top item - Window Color and Appearance.
    There's a link at the bottom of the Window Color page - "Open classic
    appearance ..."
    Click on that and the "Appearance Settings" window pops up.
    Click on the [Advanced] button on the lower right side (under [Effects]).
    In this new window "Advanced Appearance", select the Item drop-down list.
    Two of the items on that list are: "Icon Spacing (Horizontal)" and "Icon
    Spacing (Vertical)".
    You can change the icon spacing with those.
