    I don't even know how to properly ask this question, so i'm sorry for any confusion.

    Ok, before I sent my Macbook to the Genius repair, I could take snapshots and they would find their own space on the desktop. Now they go over the Macintosh HD icon. Same with whenever I insert a dvd, it goes over the HD icon. It's annoying because they all pile up on top of the HD icon.
    Anyone know how to solve this? I would (and have) Google this if I knew the proper term for this. Please help.

    Try Finder->View->View Options and play with the settings there.

    Right click->Show View Options->Arrange By->Name.

    That should do it.
