    Sister-in-law drags and clicks everything! Result is what looks like pages behind some of the icons in the dock. Can't click them. Drag an icon away and they stay but are covered immediately when the icons rearrange themselves. There are 4 or 5 of them including one hiding behind the trash. Mousing over them doesn't give any info. Ideas please on how to clean up this mess.

    Dock weirdness fixed...thanks for showing the way

    They were icons behind(!) the dock. Once the dock was smaller I could see that and merely moved the dock to the left side and could access/trash the junk that had appeared in reality on the desktop but behind the dock.
    Thanks all for your tips!
