Description of problem:
When I use right arrow to iterate over all items in a folder, it stops at the edge of the window. It would be nice if it could move me to the next row.
The same goes with the left arrow at the left edge: it could move to the previous row.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a folder with a large amount of files in the icon view.
2. Try to iterate over it with the keyboard.
3. See how painly it is when you reach the edge.
The issue is visible especially in a maximized window on a wide screen.
A change like this is best proposed and discussed upstream:
