    Hey, My name is Bob. I'm new to this forum, but I have used it numerous times to answer my Mac questions. I've looked through this forum and can't find an answer to my problem. I hope this isn't in a duplicate post.

    I'm not that computer literate, so I'll ask in layman's terms. In my finder, to the left, is the list of places you can go to by clicking them. Before, when I wanted to delete one of those, I used to drag it from that area and it would disappear in a puff of smoke. Now it doesn't "poof". It just bounces back. I can drag something into the area, but cant "poof" it out. I can go into the terminal and do it that way, but it won't "poof" anymore. It just started today.

    Any help would be awesome. Thanks.

    It seems to have been introduced with 10.6.7, a new feature Apple didn't care to mention I guess. I was flabbergasted as well, when it didn't work and then I just tried CMD and there it was again.
