Sound advice, although I must admit I seldom rebuild my desktop these days... I used to have to do it far more frequently back with System 7.<br><br>Regardless, an even better solution is the freeware TechTool utility from Micromat, which will *recreate* your desktop file, not just rebuild it. TechTool also does a few other tasks, and is a handy addition to any toolbox.<br><br>http://www.micromat.com/techTool/index_techTool.html<br><br>
