Hi All, I've just noticed that I'm having a few odd problems with access to my desktop. (Leopard 10.5.5) For instance; 1. Even though my Finder prefs allows visibilty of DVDs and HD's on the desktop, nothing is displayed. 2. I have a folder that I can see in the finder sidebar for Desktop, but again I cannot see it on the desktop. 3. I can't drag anything to the desktop, if I try, the file springs back to the source folder. Can anyone shed any light on what the problem might be? btw, I'm a recent switcher from Windows, so my knowledge of OS X is somewhat limited. Many thanks, Bob.
