Back in the days I used to run Path Finder for a while, but then removed it from the system and went back to regular finder. Now when entering i.e.
open Desktop/ in the terminal, it opens up Finder showing the Desktop directory.
Today I mounted a drive that holds backups, including a copy of an old
Path Finder.app which obviously had been detected by the system immediately, because when running
open Desktop/ it then tried to use this copy of Path Finder to open up the folder. When the drive was unmounted, it just went back to using Finder.
I assume, this is some fallback, and deep in the system there is still a setting to open folders in Path Finder. When opening the cmd+i window on a folder in Finder, there is no such thing as "open with…" like it is for a file.
So I am wondering, where I can unset Path Finder completely?
This might be useful:
