    When you download a program and install it you get the disk image that must be ejected. I swear it used to show up on my desktop and I was able to NOT show my external and internal disks there as well. But for whatever reason (brain fart or otherwise) now it's all or nothing. Either i show all the disks on the desktop or none.

    So one is to just right click on the desktop image and say eject

    Two by opening finder and eject in the side bar.

    Three using mountain app and say unmount

    Any other ways that I am not aware of? Thanks

    have you checked the App Store for "eject" type programs?

    No but that's prob not necessary. I'm sure there are another 4 or 5 wash to eject a disk that others will tell me about soon. I'm sure there is a keyboard shortcut as well.

    So is there a way to have the new programs disk image show up on the desktop without my external and internal disks as well?

    Drag the image icon to the trash (trash icon changes to the Eject symbol!)
    Select the image icon, and go to the File menu, click Eject
    Or, with the image icon selected, press Command-E
    Right-click the image icon in any Finder sidebar, click eject there.

    There must be a few other methods to eject a disk image, which I am not remembering at this moment.

    You can change, within limits, what types of volumes or images mount on your desktop, or appear in a Finder window sidebar, in the Finder preferences.
