Changing the folder view for the desktop?

I was wondering if it was possible to change the folder view for the desktop, just like any other folder.  I'd like to "List" my icons instead of using "Large Icons" on my desktop.  Is that possible??

Open the desktop as a folder (Start --> Run --> Desktop) then you can View - Details
and try it out from there

Yeah, I know I can do that... but I want that ON my desktop.  I kind of doubt it's possible, but it would save me a lot of screen space.  Any way to get items on the desktop to be shown as a LIST and not Large Icons as the default is?  And that's ON the desktop itself, not in the folder that contains the desktop, just to clarify...


Thanks,

Oops...  I seem to have forgotten all about asking this question, and for some reason the replies were not emailed to me.  Only notice I have received in email about comments, is the last administrative comment, and I came here wondering just what it was I had asked.  Sorry about that, and thank you very much wtrmk74, that seems to do just what I want it to!
