I have a late 2011 MBP, running Mac OS X 10.7.5, 2.3 GHz Intel Core i5, with 16GB 1600 MHz DDR3.
When I reboot and I try to open a Finder window with command + n or from the menu
File > New Finder Window
I see the window open and then disappear somewhere off to the left or right off the screen.
If I open multiple windows the same thing happens.
When I invoke App Expose I can see all the Finder windows I opened but as soon as I close App Expose they disappear again.
I cannot drag or select the windows in any way.
When a second monitor is connected I tried dragging them onto the second monitor but that does not help either.
The only thing I found works is:
- Press: command + alt+esc ;
- Select Finder;
- Click Relaunch.
Normal behaviour resumes.
Is there any way to troubleshoot this behaviour and stop it?
This has just happened again, and this time I took a video.
When the finder windows appear in this video, that is when I am changing desktops with command+ right. As you can see I cannot get the finder windows to show up at all.
