    Unclick "Hard Disks"

    No, just random shit all over the place. I use the desktop a lot for temporary file placement, shortcuts to some programs I use occasionally so I dont want to search for them in finder, but dont use them enough to have them in the dock. Lots of documents I use regularly, droplets for Photoshop that I want there to drag images onto from Photomechanic and various other things.

    Bottom line, its a mess. :big grin: But I know where things are and somehow it works for me.

    Create an Alias to your Mac HD and put it on your desktop. then hide the hard drives

    Brilliant! :eek5:

    I bet you could even change the icon on the alias so it looks like the original HD.
