By default, the Folders of MacBook and Mac are much larger, cluttering the Desktop and inside folders. Mainly all the folders and files stored in the MacBook are accessed from the Finder; therefore, here we’ll show you easy steps to make folders larger on Finder Mac or make folders larger on Mac Desktop. Moreover, you can enlarge folders of a particular location rather than changing settings for the entire system; that too is possible. It’s your decision; what folders do you want to see larger.

For your information, the icons can be enlarged up to 128 x 128 pixels; keeping the folder’s size bigger has one of the greatest benefits that the folders show Preview of what’s inside of it. At the same time, it makes it easy to view for small screen MacBook Pro and MacBook Air.
