Use font sizes smaller than 10pt on the Desktop
Authored by: Crawdad on Aug 24, '05 02:26:27PM
I'm trying to cram more items into the viewable portion my tall, narrow "Applications" finder window. I boldly opened
/System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app/Contents/Resources/English.lproj/ViewOptions.nib
in Interface Builder and altered the list of font sizes, changing the title of the "16 pt" item to "9 pt" and moving it to the top.

You're expecting me to tell about a disaster but in fact it worked almost as expected. However, the icons didn't get any smaller, so the line spacing did not decrease. In fact, at all sizes from 9pt to 13 pt, the same number of items were visible. I haven't found how to further shrink the small icons in the list view.
