Hey guys, I was browsing ResExcellence looking for some new icons and wallpapers. The problem is that whenever I download the file from the site in the form of a .sit file, it unpacks to be an empty folder. Am I doing something wrong?

Finder has a flaw it that it won't display the contents of an unpacked folder until you relaunch.

Relaunch Finder and everything will be in that folder. :mac:

I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

Yes, there is. Go to the Apple icon, Force Quit, and you can relaunch the Finder from there.

'cause when it rains, you know it pours.

Right clicking the Finder icon doesn't offer a Relaunch option. At least not on my Powerbook.

The best/easiest way to do it is:

Command+Option+Escape

Select Finder, click Relaunch.

I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

mmmmm i am having this problem and relaunching finder didn't do much... sometimes it will get 1 item to show up and its just a link back to the site i downloaded from.

any other help?
