I have an iMac running macOS High Sierra. Recently I setup my system so that my Desktop does not show the connected drives and doesn't show anything on my Desktop.
My desktop is completely clean. I also had many files and folders on my desktop. All those are hidden as well. I can't remember how I did that and now I'd like to change settings or turn it off but can't. Does anyone know how you would do what I have done and can tell me?
I have all the boxes checked in the Finder preferences panel so thats not the issue.
I remember a pull down menu with several options for displaying the desktop. I just don't recall how I got to the pull down menu.
