Desktop icon spacing (vertical and horizontal)

Hi. Is it possible to change the spacing between the desktop icons? I can change the icon size and the font size but that does not give me the desired outcome.


You can change the padding of the desktop icons in Xfce using CSS.

Create the file ~/.config/gtk-3.0/gtk.css, if it doesn’t already exist, and add this CSS rule in it:

.view, iconview {
    -XfdesktopIconView-cell-padding: 10; 

You have to tweak the value of the padding according to your liking.

After saving the file, logout and back in your system for the changes to have effect.



Brilliant. Thank you.
