I recently did a clean install of the MacOS Mojave and I am a little bit annoyed by the default folder I get when I press CMD+N in Finder.

How can I change the default folder when I open a new window in Finder?


Actually that is pretty easy, and pretty easy to overlook.

  1. Open a new finder window
  2. Press ⌘ Command ,
  3. Click on the leftmost icon, "General"

    Finder Preferences

  4. Near the bottom there is a pop-up menu, "New Finder windows show:"

  5. Select the location you want from that menu. You will note my Finder windows open with my Home folder, YMMV...
