It is very easy to maintain shell icon list in windows 7.

First of all I want to tell about the shell icon size.

It’s simple just hold down the Ctrl key and scroll the wheel button on the mouse.

Now about the arrangement: Drag icons and place where you would like to place.

Alternatively right click on the screen and then arrange by and click on your choice.
