2.3. Icon View

Chapter 1 provides a guided tour of the various gizmos around the edges of a window (the Close button, Resize box, and so on)—but what about what's inside a window?

As it turns out, you can view the files and folders in a desktop window in any of three ways: as icons, as a single list, or in a series of neat columns (see Figure 2-3). To switch a window from one view to another, just click one of the three corresponding icons in the window's toolbar, as shown in Figure 2-3, or choose View → as Icons (or View → as Columns, or View → as List). The keystrokes -1, -2, and -3 achieve the same results, but save you time since you don't have to use the mouse.
