    hey, I was wondering what app/plugin/prefpane there is to have the desktop show a different folder. (Leopard Intel)

    For example, instead of seeing "users/User_Name_Here/desktop" I could set the desktop to instead display "Users/User_Name_Here/Documents/Example_Folder"

    Any ideas? Thanks,

    Well, one thing that won't work is renaming the Desktop folder and creating a link named Desktop that points to another folder. I tried it real quick to see if it would work, but even when I renamed the Desktop folder, its items still showed up on the desktop, but it lost my settings for it.

    Sorry I don’t have a solution, but just out of curiosity, why would you want to do that?
