Is it possible, and how do I change icon size in my folders in Ubuntu 14.04? This was part of the folder menu in 12.04, but is missing in 14.04.

You can also use these keyboard shortcuts to zoom in and out.

  • Ctrl + + to increase the size (zoom in)
  • Ctrl + - to decrease the size (zoom out)
  • Ctrl + 0 to revert to normal size

Try this : Hold Ctrl key and scroll.

Hope this work for you.
