Basic Customization

Perhaps the first and most basic thing you’ll want to do is change the desktop background picture. I discussed how to do this at the end of Chapter 1, but let’s revisit the configuration window where you make the change. It has several other options that may be of interest.

To bring up the Configure Desktop window, simply right-click on your desktop and choose Configure Desktop. You’ll see five icons on the lefthand side of the configuration window that appears. Clicking on one of these icons changes the configuration options displayed on the right side of the window.

See Section 1.7 for a review of the Background icon (Figure 8-1). The configuration panels of the remaining four icons—Behavior, Multiple Desktops, Paths, and Screen Saver—are described in the following sections.
