I looked around on Google, but didn't really find anything on this.
On my Mac, running OS X 10.4, I can't see the desktop items.
I can see my background image, but there is nothing on my desktop.
If I go under the Finder, I can see everything on my desktop, but not if I minimize everything and just look at the dekstop.
Any idea how to fix this? +Karma for help.
Wow. That's pretty trippy.
Finder -> Preferences -> General didn't help?
Nope, tried that and System Preferences-->Desktop and all that.
Rebooting? Restarting Finder?
Boot up in safe mode and see if the icons come back.
In Finder's preferences, "Show these items on desktops" is set correctly right?
