configure user to "use large icon" remotely

Hi All,
I need to find a way to configure all workstations to use large icons for their desktop remotely. I didn't see there's a gpo setting for that, so I guess it has to be done through registry edit or script.
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks!

In the registry;

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics

the key you are looking for is "Shell Icon Size" and increase the size of that value to make the icons bigger.

To apply the key, use either a logon (not startup) script regedit /s regfile
Even better to be done through group policy preferences because you have no problem preventing that regfile getting imported over and over again.
