    .DS_Store on my desktop all of a sudden?
    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.
