So I called Apple support to fix a problem with my preferences, we reset the preferences and everything seemed to be working. I just realized however (not even sure if this is related) that all of my applications are gone from my Home>Applications. They are all still however listed in Macintosh HD>Applications. Is that weird or what? Is this a big problem? Everything still works... Can I just drag the apps folders from MacHD>Apps to Home>Apps. Does it even make a difference if I access apps from the HD root instead of the home root? Is my macbook pro going to blow up?
