I came from Windows 7 about two months ago. Purchased a new MacMini and never looked back.

In my discovery mode of learning how to explore all the features and Apps I discovered the icon snap feature. After checking the box my desktop icons lined up nice and straight, now any new icons I add will not snap like the others. I have tried to find that feature but have failed. I would appreciate someone showing my where the snap feature is hiding.

One other question I have, is there a way to adjust the sensitivity of the touch feature of my magic Track Pad?

Thank You!

Right click an empty spot on the Desktop > Sort By > Snap to Grid. That will fix the "snapping" that you're looking for.

Sensitivity of the trackpad how? If you're looking to change the speed, go to System Preferences > Trackpad > Point & Click. There's a slider in there to change the tracking speed.
