HELP: Desktop icons piling up in corner. Panther.

Discussion in 'Apple' started by Jeff Bernstein, Apr 6, 2004.

  1. Greetings:

    I've noticed that when new icons are created on the Panther desktop
    (such as when downloading files, saving new files, etc.) the icons are
    stacked on top of each other in the lower right corner. I don't
    remember this happening on my iBook but it's certainly happening on my

    Any ideas? This is making me a little nutty.

    I have the same thing, snap to grid doesn't solve it. Files,
    anything just stack on top of each other on the rightmost corner

    Yes, Snap to Grid doesn't solve it. And nothing in Desktop folder's View
    Options seems to apply.

    The idea of having to "live with it" reminds me of one of the reasons I
    prefer Mac over windoze. :)

    Did you check the Arrange By checkbox? With that checked, the only time
    I get things superimposed is if I've downloaded way too many files in
    one sitting.
