    hi guys,

    how do you list the items on the desktop as a list instead of icons.

    thanks

    You can't in the 'finder window' sense I dont think (??) but you could right click and hit view options, and change label position from bottom to right, achieve a similiar effect.

    found it

    incase anyone else wants the same


    Click on the Desktop and choose View | Show View Options from the menu
    Slide Icon Size all of the way to the left
    Slide the Grid Spacing all of the way to the right
    Set Label position to Right


    this will create a listview look.

    thanks
