I think that we are talking about 2 difference versions of KDE and
probably 2 different ways we are using the Desktops/Workspaces.

I am using, and talking about, KDE 4.8.x (latest updates to it) as
well as NOT using the Folder View for the 6 Desktops I have but have
separate Activities/Widgets for each Desktop/Workspace.
I am using vanilla 12.1+updates - KDE 4.7.2.

For example, I do not see what you just referred to which is
"Configure Desktop". In 4.8.00 (Release 462) I see "Desktop Settings".
Those are two different things, afaict. "Configure Desktop (Personal
Settings)" is found on the start menu when you kick the gecko.

Which version of KDE are you using? And do you use the Folder View?
KDE 4.7.2. If "Folder View" is the default, I'm using it.

This is what my Desktops (well one of them) looks like:
My background is just vanilla green openSUSE.

Ah, we are in a way talking apples and oranges here then.

Many things have improved with 4.8 being released to what they are in 4.7.
