    hi all,

    whenever i create a new file onto desktop (i.e. a new downloaded file, or extracted .zip file), the new file icon overlaps my Macintosh HD disk icon, instead of finding a new spot.

    My snap to grid is unchcked ,and i do have quite a bit of icons on my desktop, but there are still room to place new files..

    anyway to fix it?

    Yes, clear your desktop up. It's having problems finding a free spot. My bro is having the same problem on his desktop because it's almost full, and his Macintosh HD icon has about 10 other icons on top of it lol.
