    I've had a text file on my desktop for a while, I dragged it from one side of the screen to the other. When I let go of the mouse button the file disappeared! Its not in the trash, I've tried arranging files just in case it was hidden, no where to be found.
    Any ideas?

    Don't ya just hate it when that happens? :D


    But all seriousness aside just use Spotlight and search for the file name or some phrase you know was in the text. ;)

    Right Click on the file name and select "Open Containing Folder". Then drag it back to your desktop or where ever.
