You can access your desktop as though it were any other folder and thus delete its contents however you'd care to.

In Finder, go to the File Menu > New Finder Window. It should automatically open your user folder and show Application, Desktop, Documents, etc. From there, simply open the Desktop folder and delete the files.
If any other window is opened, click on Mac HD > Users > [your user name here] > Desktop and do the same.

How to delete files on a mac


You can either single click on the file and drag it to the trash can located on your dock or single click on the file then go to the file menu and select Move to Trash or single click on the file and click on the cmd key and the delete key at the same time. Once they are in the trash to get rid of them totally go to the finder menu and slect either empty trash or secure empty trash (this one totally purges the file and it will not be able to be recovered. Hope this helps.

Recovery?


Since you are runing under Mac OS X, NO 1 choice is rely on Time Machine to recover from backup. If you do not set Time Machine, then you probably need a Mac data recovery software. But the first thing you need to take care is do not put more items to the Macintosh HD where those trashed stuff originally located. Learn more from this article recover emptied Trash Mac for more helpful information. Best regards.

Mac Mini Desktop/Finder Problem


Hello, sorry to hear you are having problems,
THis is a classic symptom of corrupt finder preferences.
Best way to test this is to log in under another user account. If you do not have another user account, please create one, call it myadmin or something like that give it the same password as you have for your user and be sure to give it admin privileges.
You can do this by going into the system preferences and selecting the Accounts icon and clicking on the ( + ) on the bottom left hand side.
If the new user account exhibits the same symptoms, the finder may actually be corrupt. Don't worry, this is very very rare...
So, if the other user seems fine, we need to check a few things before going any further...
Have you installed any new programs or utilities or fonts or anything lately?
If so, be sure they did not install anything in your startup items, you can check this in the system preferences / accounts / Login Items... go through the list and remove anything you did not put there yourself. If you do find a few things, simply select them and hit delete on the keyboard or the ( - ) minus sign on the bottom left hand side of the window.
If you removed several items, try rebooting and see if it is better.
If there was nothing, we may need to delete your finder preferences.
Are you up for this, we are going to trash your finder preferences and then restart ..
  1. make sure nothing is running except the finder
  2. open your user home folder
  3. open your library folder
  4. open your preferences folder
  5. find this file: com.apple.finder.plist
  6. put it in the trash
  7. DO NOT EMPTY TRASH
  8. DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING ELSE
  9. restart your computer
  10. empty trash once you have restarted
  11. fix up your finder the way you like it. Voila
You should be able to get on your way with this...

Creating space on external hard drive


When you move files to the Trash on a Mac you are just marking the files to be deleted next time you empty the trash. You are not actually deleting them when you move them to the trash. They will continue to take up space on your drive until you empty the trash.

Emptying the trash will delete everything in the Trash folder regardless of which drive it is stored on. If you have files you are not certain you want to delete that are located on your internal drive, open the Trash folder and move them temporarily out (like to the desk top), then empty the trash to delete all the ones on the external drive that you do want to clear off.

You will see that the free space has increased on the external drive. Now put back in the trash the files from your internatl drive you were thinking of deleting but not certain you wnated to (if that is your reason for not wanting to empty the trash. I'm not clear on why you would not want to delete them.)
