Often, I like to save files (screenshots, text files, etc) temporarily to the Desktop.

This was no problem with previous versions of OS X, but since updating to Yosemite, I have to relaunch the Finder to reveal the saved files.

My system is: Macbook Pro 13″ 3.1GHz 1TB 16GB RAM running Yosemite 10.10.5.

  • I didn't see this under Yosemite but I've been seeing it intermittently under Sierra. Annoying. :( So far I haven't found any fix but to kill/relaunch the Finder either. – David Moles Aug 25 '17 at 3:15

  • I have Mojave 10.14.3 and when I drag a picture, or take a screenshot to the desktop it take about 30 seconds to show up. It used to be immediate. Very frustrating! – Robert Barrueco Apr 2 at 16:08
  • Did you relaunch your computer for a try? Or do you upgrade to the Yosemite beta version? – Alex Henry Jun 26 at 9:57
