HD Not Showing on your Mac Desktop

macHD_icon.pngI know this may sound silly to a lot of you, but don't you just have that secure feeling every time you turn on your Mac and your HD shows up right on your desktop?  Some Mac users purposely disable that function in order to have a cleaner desktop, and if that's your preference, then all the power to you.  But for those of us who need that security blanket, only to turn on your computer one day to find that HD gone, well, it could be enough to drive you nuts!  It's so simple, but it's a preference so many users can overlook, and usually it will disappear when you have to re-format your computer, or even sometimes when performing software updates.  Simply go to the Finder Menu > Preferences, and under the General Tab make sure where it says "Show these items on the desktop", that Hard Disks is checkmarked.  It's that simple.
