Right Click on Desktop -> Properties -> Click on 'Appearance' tab  -> Click on 'Effects' button -> Click on 'Use large icons' check box. -> Click 'OK' -> Click 'OK'

Hope this helps!

Hi, I don't mean how to get "large icons" to display by using a shortcut menu, such as right-clicking in an open window and getting a selection of small, large, thumbnail, etc.   Windows 2000 has this function but Win XP doesn't seem to.

If you want large Desktop icons, you have your answer. If that's not what you want, please explain what you do want.

While I do believe that the answers above are adequate.  Why don't you try this.  Maybe it will better suit your needs:
Steps for changing desktop icon size.

1. Right Click Desktop, Choose Properties
2. In the Properties Window click on the Appearance Tab at the top.
3. In the Appearance Window click on the button called Advanced
4. In the Advanced Appearance Window choose Item: from the drop down list and choose Icon and you can choose desired Icon size. (By default many users will see 32 x 32 pixels but this can be changed to whatever you want.)
