    Hi All,

    This is a super-trivial problem, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get it back.

    The desktop link to my hard drive / computer disappeared, god knows why. Unfortunately it's one of those special things I can't just create an Alias for and slap into the desktop again.

    What special trick am I missing to restore this icon on my desktop?

    Use Finder Preferences.

    Damn I are DUM.

    I knew it was going to be something incredibly obvious and simple. Many thanks.

    It's tricky sometimes when I work on a windoze machine - I'm so used to difficult solutions to simple problems that Mac ironically stumps me.

    Cheers!

    Don't sweat it. Even Jobs himself doesn't know where everything is!
