I use the keyboard shortcut Command + F3 to scatter the windows and show my Desktop, and then unzip an archive on the Desktop. After unzipping, the windows always scatter back automatically.

Then I have to use Command + F3 again to show Desktop again, so I can interact with the unzipped directory.

Does anyone know how to stop this? It's super annoying.

  • It appears to be the default behavior and probably cannot be changed. – user3439894 May 3 '19 at 13:55
  • Keep Finder on Space 1 & put other apps on other Spaces. That way you don't have to go digging for things all the time. See apple.stackexchange.com/a/179403/85275 for an objective lesson in Spaces. – Tetsujin May 3 '19 at 14:03
