    I'm a neat freak when it comes to my desktop. I can't, for the life of me, figure out how to align the icons on my desktop to a grid. I might be overlooking it so can somebody clue me in, please?

    Click on the desktop so that it says "Finder" in the upper left corner. Go up to the "View" menu and select "Clean Up" or "Arrange." Under Arrange you have the following choices:

    By Name
    By Date Modified
    By Date Created
    By Size
    By Kind
    By Lable

    Should work like a charm.

    Figures, I just missed it somehow. Thanks for the help.

    OSX has been an extremely easy swich for me. I've had very few things I couldn't figure out. My tech background probably helps though.

    No problem! Anything else, just ask; you've got a lot of very knowledgeable people around here.
