You can't...not just one (or individual) icons. It is all or none...afaik.

You can't change the size of a single icon.  You can change the size of all the icons by right-clicking on your Desktop and selecting 'View > Large Icons'.

I selected the properties for a desktop icon and then hit the "Change Icon" button.

 

I loaded various sizes with no effect.

 

I discovered that it accepted a 128x128 BMP file fro a WinRAR Toolbar but then it just down-sized it for the desktop and also it did a crappy job of down sampling the icon.

 

All in all, fantastically annoying to discover this since Windows should be able to do anything!

 

I suppose the next ultra easy thing to try is some sort of Rainmeter thing...
