[SOLVED] Size of icons on desktop

Wed Apr 27, 2016 12:35 pm
Hi all,

I am using KDE 4.14.2 and I have set my 4 virtual desktops to be Default Desktops (not folders)
When I try to copy items from the kickstart menu to the desktop I get small icons (I'm a bit older and like to see things a bit larger).
How do I make the icons look bigger? I know how to make one bigger by using the handle but enlarging 20 or so per desktop is a tedious job. Also is it practically impossible to make them all the same size.
One more question: how do I place these icons in a straight line next to each other, like with folder view where you can place them on a grid.

When this is not possible, is it perhaps possible to switch the desktops to Folder View and select a different folder per desktop? This way I can enlarge them easily and place them in a straight line.

Who can help with this "problem"?

size of desktop icons, try systemsettings -> icons -> icons -> advanced -> desktop -> size

straight line:
- place them in a folder view widget
- place them in a quicklaunch widget

Wow, when you say it like that it is so easy. Thank you very much, this does the trick.
Thanks again.

Lol! It always ends up being super simple once you spend a day figuring it out! I think my first hangup with KDE when I used it on Kali Linux was adjusting the volume! At the time that was pretty difficult to do :/
