Apologies if this has been posted before (and I am sure it has), but does anyone know what causes what I will refer to as disappearing icons on the desktop?

Essentially, when I download a document to my desktop, its icon does not appear after the download (or transfer). This has only recently happened in the last day or two. I did have this problem before, but if I restart the computer the icons show up on the desktop.

Any ideas?

Yeah. I have had this issue for a while. If I use the command line they are there and if I action a command on them they usually appear.

Weird, isn't it? It seems to happen randomly and hasn't occurred for a few weeks.

I found this awesome little contextual menu utility called Nudge.

It essentially does the same as a Refresh in Windows.

Thanks Jarrad - that program helps, and as you said, just like a right click in Windows to refresh

I think relaunching Finder is a bit excessive...

It's not like Finder is hanging, it's just not displaying the folder contents correctly.
