Reduce icons in Application View in Gnome-Shell

The trick that I show you in this post may be of interest to many users of Gnome-Shell that worry about the aesthetics of your desk, and it is very simple to do.

The objective is to reduce the size of the icons when we are in Applications View.

gksu gedit /usr/share/gnome-shell/theme/gnome-shell.css

We look for the lines:

/* Apps */
.icon-grid {
spacing: 18px;
-shell-grid-item-size: 118px;
}
.icon-grid .overview-icon {
icon-size: 96px;
}

And we replace them with the desired values, in this case the icon size and separation were reduced to half:

/* Apps */
.icon-grid {
spacing: 18px;
-shell-grid-item-size: 59px;
}
.icon-grid .overview-icon {
icon-size: 48px;
}

That will be enough. We restart the Shell (Alt + F2 we write r)
