I use Safari and Chrome to download files and set the Desktop as the download folder.

Each time I download something it does not appear on the Desktop. But if I relaunch Finder then it will appear on the Desktop. I relaunch Finder 20-50 times per day.

This behavior existed on High Sierra and now on Mojave. Always using release software, never beta software on this machine.

  • just out of curiosity, how do you access your desktop, and do you have more than one desktop – Ruskes Oct 21 '18 at 16:57
  • One desktop. And I have a hot corner to show desktop so I can get to stuff there. – William Entriken Oct 22 '18 at 12:59
