    items on desktop disappearing
    i saved three things on my desktop through the internet, two pictures and one video, but when i looked, they weren't on my desktop ... at least they weren't visible. i went to itunes to see if i could still find the picture that i had downloaded for cover art and it showed the two images and video file that i had saved onto my desktop. problem is, i can't see them. i went to my hdd and clicked on desktop and even there it doesn't show anything. can somebody possibly help me out?

    By chance do you have another folder on your HD called Desktop?

    Do a search for the file name to see if the Finder can find it for you.

    Check out this url from Apple about Spotlight, click on the video over towards the right too:

    http://www.apple.com/macosx/features/spotlight/

    I like the shortcut Apple + Space Bar to use it.
