    Hi,

    I've noticed over the last few days that whatever i save, (word doc, iphoto, e-mail, iweb, final draft scripts) or create a new folder... it doesn't show on the desktop unitl i either restart the machine or log out and then log back in... and then all the files that haven't been appeared at the time show up.

    Any ideas on how to stop this without giving my machine a clean instal?

    THANKS

    :confused: What's that?
    Is that under "Get Info" and you can change it to write, read only and no access. If so yes... but i can only do it after the restart/log out to make them appear.

    you can try deleting the desktop folder. OSX will recreate a new one on restart
