You  can  control the size of icons in the file manager  (Konqueror),  the
desktop  and other 'components' separately. As a side note, GNOME makes it
somewhat easier as you can extend the size of icons individually.

If  I recall correctly, there are three such components if you follow  the
route  above (I am still on 9.x and 8.x, so I can't tell for sure). I per-
sonally prefer large (128x128 pixels) icons on my Desktop because previews
of  ASCII files, PDF's, and thumbnails of images make it a good reflectant
of  content that is worked on. Just ensure you move commonly-used programs
to the panels or use keyboard accelerators. Don't over-inflate the Desktop
with files either. It's only an evolving personal preference, of course.

Best wishes,
