    Do what?
    Can you be a bit more specific please?

    If you are talking about the icons on the KDE desktop, maybe this helps:

    move or resize several icons on the desktop.
    If i click and maintain over one icon, it appears the controls that allow me to move or resize it, but what if I want to move or resize 10 of them at once?

    regards

    Yeah, but *what* icons?

    If you mean files and "shortcuts" (to launch applications), create them in a folder view instead of separate icon widgets, you can then change the size of all icons at once in the folderview settings.

    A folderview basically "emulates" the "classical" desktop behavior with icons, you can also select several and move them together, or rename/delete them and so on.

    Yes, I meant shortcuts to launch applications, but placed over the desktop instead of in a folder.
    I have seen that if in the "configure desktop" I set layout to forderview then if I have several icons on the desktop I can select a lot of them with a rectangular selection and then move them (or delete them), but in desktop layout I cant select more than one (or I have not seen the way).

    You can if you add a "folderview" widget/applet to your desktop and create the "shortcuts" in there. (though it won't be possible to freely position them)

    But if that's what you want, why not just use a folderview layout?
    That's even the default in 42.2, and you can still add other widgets to your desktop too.

    Yes, i have done that. I'm just playing with the desktop, a lot of different views and a bit confusing.

    thanks
