    Question Desktop icons keep disappearing
    Most of the time when I turn on my MBP, the Macintosh HD icon moves way up in the top left corner so u can only see the last few letters. Sometimes all icons on my desktop are moved up there and I have to put them back. Well today I turned on my Mac and everything was gone. I checked my Finder preferences and everything looks fine. I couldn't figure out how to get them back so I just restarted my Mac and everything was fine. Why does this keep happening? I looked in finder when everything went missing, but all of the documents that should be on the desktop showed up in the desktop section in finder... This started happening after I installed Snow Leopard btw.

    I’m not positive, but the icons might be getting disorganized. With the desktop active, select View → Show View Options (or press ⌘J) and then select Arrange by: Snap to Grid. If the icons get out of whack again, select View → Clean Up, and they should move back into their proper places.
