    How do you make the Hard Drive Icon stay in the upper right hand corner of the desktop as it did when it was new? I apparently have changed something as it will never stay in that spot.

    Thanks for you help!

    Try going to Finder and hitting ⌘-J to bring up your view options. Keeping things arranged by type should work (and so will other options).

    Check the setting of "Snap to Grid" view option.

    Finder>View>Show View Options or right/ctrl-click on Desktop and select "Show View Options"

    Hope that helps.

    i also have a question regarding the HD location. for some reason it always moves itself to the about 3/4 of the way down to the bottom when I restart. I think that checking the snap to grid will work, but is this supposed to happen? why?

    Thank you very much for the suggestions. The hard drive icon is in the corner as I like it.

    Thanks Again!
