I have a MacBook Pro, which up until a week ago was working flawlessly. However, now when I open my finder to get to applications or what have you, no icons appear. Everything on my sidebar (applications, documents, desktop) appear to be empty, but when I right click and "get info" it tells me exactly how much space my files are using up... so it acknowledges that they are there, I just can't see them. Also, when I search for files in the right hand corner, they appear by keyword... it's all very wonky. Did I press something weird? Thanks!

If I was at my Mac, I'd check to see if there is a sidebar plist file. Maybe someone else can help...

There's a sidebarlists.plist file.

(That's all I can tell you, I know nothing about messing with plist files!)
