    Macintosh HD icon not on my desktop
    I just unboxed my new MBP and went thru all the initial set up steps. When I got to the desktop screen its a bit different than what I am used to simply because there is not a icon of my HD...
    I know I can click finder and get to it that way, but habit will be for me to double click an icon on my desktop since thats what I've been doing on my old mac for years...
    is there a way to get that on my desktop screen?
