    Hey Guys

    I got a dumb problem, that i really cant figure out how to fix.

    I have some folders, disks and documents placed on my desktop, so im able to access it quick and see my current tasks. But when i reboot my iMac all my desktop folders gets moved out to the right, and is completely messed up.

    I got a Macbook pro, and its not an issue on that machine, only on my iMac.

    I've searched everywhere on google, and i haven't fount a solution to my problem yet, so now i ask u guys.

    How can you set your mac, not to mess up folders, documents and disks placed on the desktop when you reboot?

    that's a new one, I've never had this issue and all my folders & files are scattered all over my desktop. I'd check Finder - Preferences. See what that can do.

    Have you tried basic troubleshooting like repairing permissions in disk utility?
