OpenWindows User's Guide

Setting the Default Locations for Icons

You can change the default location where icons appear in the Workspace when they are closed from windows. The OpenWindows default location for icons is on the bottom edge of the Workspace.

To change the default locations of icons:

  1. In the Workspace Properties window, press MENU on the Category menu button and choose Miscellaneous.

  2. Click Select on the appropriate button.

    You can specify any of the four edges of the Workspace as the default location for icons.

  3. Click SELECT on Apply.

    Changes to the Icons setting take effect immediately. That is, icons for applications that are on the Workspace or are subsequently opened are located in the newly specified location. Icons for applications started from the command line with an explicit icon location appear in the specified location.
