Sometimes when I click on the desktop, Finder opens. How can I disable this in OS X 10.9?

For what it's worth, it was already happening in Mountain Lion.

    This is not intended afaik. Are you sure that you are not clicking on a file? – napcae Oct 27 '13 at 11:08

    @TrungNguyenChi: yes, I am. I just single click on an empty spot of the desktop. – Bruno Stonek Oct 27 '13 at 11:42
  • I assume you mean a Finder window opens, launching the default location of new finder windows (i.e. your home folder)? As I have noticed a worsened funky window bug across all applications since 10.8.3, it's possible this is the same bug, however, I typically have so many windows open including Finder windows, that I wouldn't normally be in an identical situation. – NOTjust -- user4304 Nov 1 '13 at 19:31
  • @NOTjust--user4304: no, Finder just comes to the top, showing whatever was open before... – Bruno Stonek Nov 1 '13 at 20:29

The reason is because you didn't exit that finder window last time you exited logged out or shut down your mac.

If not that then you have some form of malware on your computer
