I have no idea how this happened, but when I open desktop in finder, it opens with the Terminal application. When I look at it, it says desktop is a package instead of a folder. This presents problems i.e. cant drag and drop, Can't create a new folder, dashboard and launchpad malfunction.
How do I get me desktop back to its original form?
Macbook Pro/ Mountain Lion
