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?
But a much better solution is this:
Your desktop is now entirely a Folder View widget.
This works in KDE 4.7, but I don't remember such setting in 4.6, so I think it is not there.
