    An old former Mac user told me I should rebuild the desktop once a month. How do you do this?

    Their advice is rather out of date. You can't "rebuild the desktop" on Mac OS X. That only applied to Mac OS 9 and older, 10 years ago :)

    As mentioned, rebuilding the desktop was a process for OS9 and earlier.

    Running Snow Leopard on an Intel Mac: don't worry about it.
