Working with Icon View

Icon view displays a window’s contents as icons. Unlike some other views, a window in icon view displays the contents of only one disk or folder at a time.

As discussed on page <?>, icons can be dragged to reposition them in a window. You can also use commands under the View menu to align icons in the window.

To clean up a window:

  1. Activate the window that you want to clean up A.
  2. Figure 5 A Sometimes windows just get messy.

  3. Choose View > Clean Up B.
  4. The icons are moved into the nearest unoccupied space in the window’s invisible grid C.

    Figure 6 B You can choose the Clean Up command under the View menu...

    Figure 7 C ...to move icons into the window’s invisible grid.
