    So when i download items to my desktop (leopard) some times, not all the time, the items are no where to be found on the desktop. I do know that they were downloaded there. If i go to finder and look under the desktop from there, the items are there, but not physically on the desktop. Anybody know whats goin on?

    PS. i do not have multiple desktops set up, just this 1

    if you have 10.5, they might be in your downloads folder in the dock.

    i had this happen as well. to fix it, i brought up spotlight (apple+spacebar) then typed in the name of the file to open it up

    i think a reboot fixed it also
