Setting what Finder Windows Open To

In this lesson for in macOS Mojave for the Mac, I look at how to set what a new Finder window opens to. By default, it opens to your Recent Files, but you can change this to open to a specific folder every time.

Setting which Window a Finder Window opens up to
To set which window a new Finder window opens up to, you need to go to the Finder Preferences, which is under Finder menu in the Menu Bar. A new window will open when you select this. In the new window, select the General tab. You’ll see an option for New Finder Window Shows: In the dropdown below this, select the folder you want you new Finder windows to open up to. You’ll have some default folders you can choose. If the folder is not listed, select Other in the dropdown and select the folder you want.
