I have Pathfinder 9 on two machines. But on one, when I tick the preference "Hide Finder's Desktop," all desktop icons disappear. I get an empty desktop, even though the files are visible when I browse to my Desktop folder. Could this be related to the fact that I have two monitors on this machine?
