Software :: Desktop Doesn't Show Any Icons - How To Get Back Icons

Sep 29, 2008

i am a tad stumped by this issue i'm having right now with my new imac. i noticed one day that none of my desktop aliases show any longer. in fact if i go to the desktop folder through finder my files and such show in there however none of my aliases nor those files show on the actual desktop. another thing i've noticed is that whenever i now try to drag and drop anything to the desktop whether it be a URL from safari or an alias i made in finder the dragged item simply just drags itself back to where i pulled it from.

OS X :: No Desktop Icons - How To Put Icons Back On Desktop

Feb 20, 2008

Okay, I'm having some problems with my Powerbook. Yesterday, I upgraded Firefox. When re-opening after the upgrade, I had a kernel panic. I restarted my computer and figured I would be good to go. Well, after logging back in, I found that Finder was acting up and I no longer had any desktop icons. Now, clicking the Finder icon in the dock will open a new Finder window just fine. If I go to the Desktop from there, all my icons are still there. So, I decided to restart my computer and see if that made a difference.

OS X :: Changing Dock Background - Folder Icons And App Icons?

May 1, 2010

First off, I've searched the forums, but can't find an answer -- sorry if I missed something.Just got a new machine running 10.6.3 -- ugh, the dock and folders and so on look like clunky Windows junk :-(I miss my simple, elegant 10.4.11 dock ...I don't want to add novelty icons or that kind of thing, I just want a borderless dock that's semi-transparent or clear. And apparently all the apps out there to change the dock background don't work with Snow Leopard.I know CandyBar can help me with the folder icons and app icons, but as far as I can tell, not the actual dock background.

OS X :: How To Restore Icons Back To Defaults

Nov 26, 2010

I recently changed the dock and most of the icons to custom ones and I would like to restore them all back to default. But since I no longer have the originals, I can't just copy paste each and everyone back. So how would I do this? I tried installing the combo updater hoping it would overwrite it all, but no go. I just found you can get info on an icon and then press delete or cmd+X, but it doesn't work on Mail. It erases the icon and gives me the generic "no icon" icon (white paper with writing utensils).

OS X :: Can Lock Desktop Icons

Sep 21, 2010

Does anyone know if there's a way to lock my desktop icons (so my curious kids don't mistakenly - or not so mistakenly - move stuff around or into trash). My desktop is kept fairly simple (icons for the various HDs and folders for homework). We've also had the issue of items going *poof* from the dock - which is an easily fixable issue - but a little bit of a nuisance to have to retrieve from time to time.

OS X :: How To Set Desktop Items Name Appear Beside Icons

Feb 10, 2009

I've noticed in the February desktops thread (in the Pictures category) that some people have their drive icon names appearing beside the icon rather than beneath it. How do you do this? Also, some of the photos show the size of the drive as well as how much space is left. How do you do this? See this post for what I'm talking about. [URL]. Also, in that same post, what the program is that shows the currently playing track on iTunes?

OS X :: ADC To DVI For G4 - Icons On Desktop Stretching

Apr 5, 2010

I recently purchased an ADC to DVI adapter for my G4. I'm connecting a 20'' Gateway Monitor. First everything was okay. But the icons on the desktop were stretching a little. So I changed the resolution and the monitor went into a sleep mode. I restarted the computer, and the Apple logo appears but the monitor falls back into sleep mode. WTF? I disconnected, reconnected, tried about everything. I connected the monitor to my Dell and it works fine.

OS X :: Won't Work With SL / Can't Get Back Apps Folder And Icons

Feb 2, 2010

After happily using Tiger for years, I finally switched to SL with the purchase of a new 27 iMac. And I hate SL already. I accidentally removed the applications folder from the dock, and when I tried to get it back, it only comes on with the address book icon. Try this to see how retarded SL is: open the applications folder in finder, and drag it to the dock - when you release the mouse, it magically transforms the icon on the dock to an address book icon - why? WTF knows. It's retarded. Really, I've only spent a few hours on SL and I find it so chock full of bugs I wish I could go back to Tiger.

OS X :: Can Hide Specific Icons On The Desktop

Aug 27, 2010

I've got an external HD hooked up to my iMac and it has some software on there that brings up a CD icon on the desktop.

Is there a way to hide just that specific icon?

I know you can go to Finder and uncheck so that it doesn't show CD/DVD icons on the desktop...but that would mean anytime I pop in a CD it wouldn't show up and I don't want that, just want to hide the specific App icon.
