How to arrange a messy desktop on a one-time basis
Authored by: patch1103 on Jan 16, '08 08:03:50AM

So how is this different from just selecting View -> Arrange by... -> Kind (CTRL-CMD-5) from the Finder menu bar? It performs the same action -- one time arrangement of Desktop items by kind -- without having to go into the View options and perform those extra steps.

Fair enough, I stand corrected!

A much quicker way to achieve the same goal. And without the bad news of icons going back to their original manic position.

My mistake was thinking that menu option turned on snapping without actually testing it, it doesn't.

This is a much better way of doing things than I mentioned and all you children out there should be doing it this way, not my way, OK? :)
