I'd like my KDE4 desktop to be filled with nothing but a view of the Desktop files, like the KDE3 one (or really, any other desktop). How can I resize the Desktop folder view plasmoid to take up the whole desktop screen?

[Joke start]
To resize the Desktop folder view plasmoid to take up the whole desktop screen you can... resize it to take up the whole desktop screen.
[Joke end]

But a much better solution is this:

  • Right click the desktop and select Desktop Settings
  • Change Layout to Folder View
  • Press Apply

Your desktop is now entirely a Folder View widget.
Location, Display and Filter sections of Desktop Settings (which are now renamed to Folder View Settings) contain the same settings as a normal Folder View widget settings.

This works in KDE 4.7, but I don't remember such setting in 4.6, so I think it is not there.
