    select desktop icons too big

    Due to work I haven't used an ubuntu flavour for about a year or so, but just installed 10.04 and am migrating everything to this system.

    Anyhow, my desktop icons are way too big. Well, specific icons such as pdf, jpg, etc. seem to big, but I like the size of folders. I know that you can change the overall icon size from nautilus > edit > prefs > icon zoom level, but this changes everything (including the icon size of folders....which are already sized appropriately).

    How can I get pdf, jpg, etc. icons to show up the same size as folders? see screenshot
