So I got an iMac yesterday. My first apple computer since the apple IIe. Did all the updates. Everything was going well. I started downloading things. For some reason after a while things that I downloaded or expanded to the desktop would stop appearing. I went to the finder and typed a partial name of the files and sure enough there they were. I then would click on the file name in finder and then the file would show up on the desktop. I rebooted (classic PC solution) and all of the files showed up on the desktop. Anyone know why this happened?
