Solaris Common Desktop Environment: User's Guide

To Add an Application or Other Icon to a Subpanel

You can add any type of File Manager or Application Manager icon to the Front Panel. However, the most convenient use for this feature is adding application icons.

  1. Display the object's icon in File Manager or Application Manager.

  2. Display the subpanel to which the object is to be added.

  3. Drag the object to the Install Icon control and drop it on the control.

How Installed Icons Work

The behavior of controls added to the Front Panel using the Install Icon control depend on the type of icon that was dropped.
