Hide/Show your system disk icon on Snow Leopard

If you upgrade your Leopard to Snow Leopard, you probably won’t notice anything difference on your desktop; but if you did a clean installation using a retail Snow Leopard copy like I did. The default desktop you will see is like this:

You will probably question yourself, where is the Macintosh HD icon? Well, no panic, it’s still there, just Snow Leopard hide it for you to give you a neater desktop. You can follow my quick tip here to get it back.

  1. Click on your desktop, and then choose from the menu bar, “Finder”->”Preference”, or “Command”+”,” after you click on your desktopFinderPreference
  2. Then you will see the option right away and I am sure you know what to do, just check the “Hard Disks” option.Setting

Hope this little tip is helpful to you. :D
