Thread: Desktop folder management with KDE

  1. #1

    Default Desktop folder management with KDE

    In OS 13.2 my desktop icons were directly on the desktop. Now with 42.1 they are in a desktop folder. I can neither move that desktop folder around nor expand it, although there are scrollbars to allow me to access each desktop item. I would rather my desktop items be directly on the desktop rather than in a desktop folder. Is there a way to do that ? Is there a way to expand the desktop folder itself or move it around in the desktop area instead ?

    If I understand what you want correctly...

    Right click desktop > Unlock widgets
    Right click desktop > Desktop Settings
    Set "Layout" to be "Folder View"
    Close settings window
    Right click desktop > Folder View Settings
    Click "Location"
    Set appropriate path that you want

    Then you can delete the desktop widget if you don't like it.

    Hope that helps.

    Note that with the change from KDE 4 to 5 the desk top settings have both changed location and in most case file format so you can not inherit 4's settings. Got to set things up again
