In previous Mac OS versions (<10.9) I was able to change the images' thumbnails in the finder by zooming or unzooming with the trackpad. Now that I run on Mavericks, I can't find a way to do it. Does anyone know a trick for that ?

  • Do you mean you want to change them or do you want to change them via the trackpad ? – rwenz3l Jul 10 '14 at 11:17

In any folder or window (including Desktop) simply press : CMD+J


If the Status Bar is showing (View > Show Status Bar), then you can use the slider in the bottom-right corner to adjust the thumbnail zoom. status bar zoom slider


In list view, you can't get your icons any bigger than the larger of the two sizes available in the View Options choices; it's been a problem for when trying to review (most) images since the thumbnail icons came out.
