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?

    Hi Andrew,

    Mary from Path Finder support here!

    First of all, please accept my apologies for such a delayed response. I understand how frustrating it might be not to receive any response for such a long time. I apologize and will make sure this won’t happen again.

    The reason why you don't see Path Finder's desktop is because it might have been hidden. To show Path Finder's desktop, make sure to launch Path Finder > click on Path Finder option in the menu dock > Show Path Finder's desktop.

    Should you have anything else you'd like to address, please feel free to write us back, and we will be happy to assist you.

    Best Regards,
    Path Finder Support Team
