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?
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.
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.
