I am seeing strange behavior on my user account. After creating a new user account and creating the same folder - Finder behavior is normal.
This is true with directories and files.
1st example: I have a
.config folder in my user folder. Finder displays it as a folder with a folder icon until I install BBEdit and restart. Then it displays the .config folder with a BBEdit file icon. To check if the issue was my user account I created a new admin user and created a
.config folder for that user. The
.config folder is displayed properly - with a folder icon.
2nd example. I am creating files with no extenion using a script. Some of the files are seen as
Kind: Document, others are seen as
Kind: Unix executable and yet others as
Kind: TextEdit.app Document. All of the files were created with the same script using the
touch command (the pattern appears to be file names with no white spaces are seen as kind "Document" while file names that have white spaces are seen as kind "Unix executable"). Except.... (maybe just executable bit is set per Ginteras)
/etc/paths.d I have two files:
One is seen as a Unix executable the other as a TextEdit.app Document.
Adding a video file to show Finder behavior for the
