How about telling us which Mac desktop you have? Assuming it's an iMac, year and model? The ifixit web site has instructions for changing the front glass on an iMac. You might want to go there with your model number on hand and look up the instructions. iFixit: The free repair manual

If you have an imac you can use suction cups to remove the glass and then get a new screen online pretty cheap.

Apple will charge you FAR more than the price of the lcd to replace it. You can do the replacement pretty easily yourself. Check out LCDs4less. My only complaint is that the model I received had a slightly different name than the model I ordered (this likely had to do with the model I ordered being comparitively old, so I received a newer version)
