Sorry I'm no computer legend but with so many members of my family using things happen.
Just recently the Macintosh HD icon appears on my desktop - how do I return it to its rightful location?
Thank you for your assistance:confused:
 

Peace

Click on the finder preferences.It will look something like the attachment.You can show or hide hard drives on the desktop.The hard drive you see on your desktop is an icon and a link to the actual hard drive.

is this what you mean lauren? the hard drive icon isnt at the top right of the desktop when youve got other icons or disks on your desktop. right click on the desktop and click show view options then tick "keep arranged by" then choose kind. this will put all the disks at the top right. :)
