Hi,

I just noticed yesterday there is this icon ".DS_Store" on my desktop not sure where it came from. I keep deleting it but it just wouldn't go away, it reappears as soon as I send it to trash. Can someone please help me out? Thanks...

You are seeing an invisible file, the DS_Store file.

Did you run a utility like OnyX or MainMenu and ask to see invisible files?

I ran main menu I guess I clicked on "show invisibles" accidentally. It's fixed now. Thanks. I take it this file is normal and doesn't harm anything?

Yep, it's safe and normal. Take the time to read the link I posted it explains it to you.
