Do you mean how to add workspaces?

Settings Manager | Workspaces


Right click on the Workspace indicator in the top panel and select Workspace Settings.

I can't see that you can make it 2 x 2 as opposed to 4 x 1 though.

Thank you for your reply PaulW2U,
no, the problem is not the workspaces, the problem is:
On the desktop you can place icons (Folders, Launchers, etc.) and arrange them as you like in a grid, but, can I decide how big or small can be the size of the cells that compose this grid?
You known what I mean?

Thanks! :)

Thank You Jose Catre-Vandis,
your reply partially solved my problem,
resizing desktop icons i can adjust their position more precisely but my problem are the cells where the desktop icons moving.
When you try to move an icon you can see a square cell that indicate you where the icon where placed, ok? The problem is the dimension of that cell, can i resize that cells?

Thans again to all!
