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 20, 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 blackcircle_a.jpg.
  2. Choose View > Clean Up blackcircle_b.jpg.

    The icons are moved into the nearest unoccupied space in the window’s invisible grid blackcircle_c.jpg.
