He said that the picture would download if I was on a different desktop, or if it wasn't already synced in my photos. :-/

That cannot be the reason.  My Mac is syncing with iCloud Photo Library, but I can still download all photos from the web interface at www.icloud.com, even if all photos have already been downloaded to the Photos LIbrary on the same mac.

Is your new Mac really running Sierra as show in your signature? Or is it running High Sierra?

 

It the photos in iCloud have been taken with an iPhone running iOS 11, the photos may be using the new HEIC codec. In that case a Mac with macOS 10.12. Sierra cannot  read the image files and videos, see:   Using HEIF or HEVC media on Apple devices - Apple Support

Hi zna2212!

It sounds like your documents are being synced to iCloud Drive and you'd like to revert to how you had it setup before, and I'm happy to help.  You can follow these instructions to turn off Desktop and Documents in iCloud Drive.  If this doesn't resolve the issue for you, please reply to this thread with further information:

Turn off Desktop and Documents

When you turn off Desktop & Documents Folders, your files stay in iCloud Drive and a new Desktop and Documents folder is created on your Mac in the home folder. You can move files from iCloud Drive to your Mac as you need them, or select all of your files and drag them to the place you want to keep them.

  1. From your Mac, go to Apple menu  > System Preferences > iCloud.
  2. Next to iCloud Drive, click Options.
  3. Deselect Desktop & Documents Folders.
  4. Click Done.

If you turn off iCloud Drive or sign out of iCloud, you have the option to keep a local copy of your files that are in iCloud Drive. Whether you decide to keep a local copy or not, a new Desktop and Documents folder is created in your home folder. If you choose to keep a local copy, your files in iCloud Drive are copied to a folder called iCloud Drive (Archive) in your home folder. Then you have the option to move any files that were in your iCloud Desktop and Documents, back to your new local Desktop and Documents.


Add your Desktop and Documents files to iCloud Drive


Cheers!

Launch Finder from the Dock


Using the Menu bar, click on Finder then click on Preferences...


Under the  General tab, you can see that only External disks and CDs, DVDs and iPods are selected by default to be displayed on the desktop. To display the hard disk icon on the desktop, select the checkbox beside Hard disks

 

Once selected, the changes are applied instantly and you can see now the Macintosh HD icon displayed on the desktop.

Strange...! That sounds like the red frame that you see while you adjust the Arrangement in dual displays.

Do you have a display adapter plugged in, run dual displays or have the Displays Preference Arrangement tab open...?

 

If not, see if an NVRAM reset will clear the problem.

see > How to reset NVRAM on your Mac - Apple Support 

 

If not, try starting up in Safe Mode.

see > Use safe mode to isolate issues with your Mac - Apple Support


if it's a .exe file the program is for Windows, not macOS.

iPad mini4 desktop icons won't reload after restore

Favor from:


Hi,

Hi,

 

After restoring from a backup, these things tend to happen, especially if you have a large number of apps. I would leave the iPad overnight, and if they are still loading then try deleting the apps and downloading them again. Edit: also, make sure you are connected to WiFi so that the apps can download. 


 

Hope this helps!
