SetDirectory[ ] for Folders on the Mac Desktop?
How can I SetDiretory[ ] to a folder that's on my Macintosh desktop? SetDirectory["myHardDisk:someHardDiskFolder"] works fine. SetDirectory["myHardDisk:someDesktopFolder"] doesn't. Neither does SetDirectory["myHardDisk:Desktop:someDesktopFolder"]. Using the Mac "Get Info" command on someHardDiskFolder or someDesktopFolder seems to give the same form for either one, i.e. it doesn't show any explicit "Desktop" aspect in the file path for the latter case.
