    Default Desktop gone weird. Able to create files w/o widgets?

    Could someone confirm the ability to create desktop shortcut or files without the need of a widget?

    I was browsing through Kickoff (the "start menu" on KDE) and it crashed. The whole KDE re-started and suddenly I'm able to create shortcuts on the Desktop, as well as copy/paste files, create Text files etc without the need of a widget. You can see that the menu is different too, before this incident I had to click "Default desktop settings", and now "Folder view settings".

    I'm asking this because it happened after the KDE crash and I didn't change any settings.

    Folder View and Default Desktop are different activities, they will behave differently. I'm not sure of the detail.

    That's why this is weird. When I open "Folde View Settings" it opens "Desktop Settings".
    Could you look at my video? Look in the menu (when I press the left button) and see if there's anything I can do?

    I didn't change anything, no settings were altered. It changed after the crash I mentioned.

    Regards

    In folder view thing work like a classical desktop ie it is just a view into a folder so yes you can create stuff in the folder.

    Hmm, thanks for clarifying that, I thought it was due to the crash.
    Good to see I can switch from these views, I find this one much better
