    Is there any way I can adjust the Horiz. and vert distance btwn my Desktop Icons.

    I run Win 8.1 with "Classic Shell" to get a Win 7 style desktop

    That requires making changes to the Registry, which can be dangerous as changes are immediate with no "undo" option. Accidentally changing the wrong setting can break Windows.

    So you might want to check out Winaero Tweaker. This is Registry tweak program that lets you make changes that you can easily change back if you don't like them. Under Advanced Appearance Settings > Icons, you can change those Icon spacing settings.
