    Hello folks,

    I've got an issue where I have a bunch of .zip.part files in my downloads stack, which I cannot remove (I do not know how to remove a file directly from the stack, perhaps there's a way?) because when I open the downloads folder in finder, they aren't there.

    Any help?

    I had this same problem - I think it comes from ripping things out of there before they are done downloading, but to fix it I did the following:
    1. open terminal
    2. cd Downloads
    3. rm .DS_Store
    4. removed the folder from the Dock
    5. dragged it back on
    6. done. you may be able to skip deleting the .DS_Store, try it an let me know :)
