Windows only: DesktopListView is an really tiny application that activates a list view of small icons on your destop, giving you more room for an intriguing desktop or custom-sized windows.

Doing so is more labour intensive than simply double clicking DesktopListView.exe to achieve the same effect. If you like the arrangement, and find that it doesn't stick between sessions, throw a shortcut to the executable in your startup folder. Included in the zip file is a small batch file to unload the effect, which saves you from having reboot to ditch the list view if you should find it not to your liking. Thanks Nick!

But it's also being implemented in a pretty ham-fisted way, with everyone's consent assumed unless they opt out. I've been looking at the system. Here's what I'll be doing.
