    Try the following:
    1. Press Command (apple key)-Alt/Option-D simulaneously to toggle hiding.
    2. If that doesn't work, click on the apple at the top-left of the screen, choose Force Quit and then choose Finder and Relaunch.
    3. If that doesn't work, delete your com.apple.finder.plist file in the YOURUSERNAME/Library/Preferences folder. You'll have to do step 2 again or logout and back in.

    it seems like most of the problems in osx can be fixed by deleting some kind of cache. its an interesting pattern hah.
