From time to time, all of the icons on my Leopard desktop freeze. It’s like the entire desktop is a static bitmap, I cannot select any icon, move them, or show a context menu for icons.
To fix the problem, I right click the desktop, select “Show View Options”, and then change something like Icon Size or Grid Spacing.
After this little kick in the pants, the desktop icons become responsive again. But when the problem occurs, it usually happens several more times that day. What causes this?
