Solaris Common Desktop Environment: User's Guide

To Put a File or Folder on the Workspace Backdrop

This procedure creates a copy of the icon on the workspace backdrop. Any changes you make to the copy on your workspace backdrop will also be made to the original that is still in File Manager.

  1. Switch to the workspace where you want to display the object.

  2. Then:

    • Drag and drop the object's icon onto the workspace.

    • Or, select the icon, then choose the Put in Workspace command from the Selected menu or from the icon's pop-up menu (displayed by pressing Shift+F10 or mouse button 3).

    You can repeat these steps to put an icon on the desktop in as many workspaces as you want.
