    I appologise in advance if this seems a simple problem to rectify but i can't sort it out.
    Using Mac osx on an emac.
    Here it is. I can't click and drag icons on the desktop. I can move open windows around but icons remained fixed. It has been suggested that it may be something I have inadvertadely put into trash, but as i can't drag anything out of trash i'm a little stuck.
    If you know how to rectify this problem or how to manually retrieve items from the trash please let me know. It's been doing my nut in.

    click on your desktop so it says finder in the upper left corner. Then click on view. Then click on show view options and uncheck "Keep arranged by".
