    Just upgraded my computer (used migration assistant) MBA to rMBP. Not sure if its a buggy app with the new computer, migration assistant, or something new I installed.

    Anyways whenever I drag and drop anything to the desktop it always in a totally different location when it drops. Normally its directly below the mouse. Now it on the other side of the screen (typically under another window). No rhyme or reason...

    Any ideas?

    P.S. Its not placing it in the upper right, I know it does that from time to time. Its seems to be a mirrored location 100% the opposite. So if its upper right, it drops lower left.

    Do you have sort by or snap to grid enabled?
