Hello, 'gavinayling' and everyone.
Thank you for your suggestions.
The URL below does appear to let the user change the KDE grid spacing (the number of pixels between icons, horizontally and vertically).
I am using KDE 3.1.1 and, unfortunately, the only option offered by the control panel is changingthe icon size, not the space between the icons. (If Windows
users can perform this function, there must be a way to do it for KDE running under Linux!
To quote one signature file I've seen, "If Linux does not have the solution, then you have the wrong problem.")
I have seen my same question several times during my ongoing research, but never
have I seen a solution!
The only hope that I see now is to check all of the KDE configuration scripts and to hope that I can modify one to make the change that I want. As a newbie, however, I may not recognize the needed file if and when I find it!
If KDE had this feature in an earlier version or versions, it would stand to reason that it is still possible to perform this function, but I simply cannot determine how.
(I would not think that the KDE developers removed this feature, but perhaps they had technical reasons for doing so.)
If anyone has any other suggestions, please let me know.

Try that site it mentions an entry "Desktop Icons" in the KDE Control Centre. I admit it is not in my Control Centre though! If you find out how to add it the Control Centre list, please let me know too!
